AB de Villiers has scan on left thigh injury

South Africa's leading batsman AB de Villiers has undergone a scan on his left thigh after picking up an injury during their World Cup win over India.

De Villiers was rested for the match against Ireland on Tues day.

The 27-year-old has been in sensational form, hitting back-to-back centuries against West Indies and the Netherlands, but additional wicketkeeping workload has been taking a toll on his back. However, he handed over the wicketkeeping duties to Morne van Wyk in South Africa's last two matches, against England and India, to help his ailing back recover.

The right-handed player has been the most successful batsman for South Africa in the showpiece event and is currently placed third with 318 runs in the list of highest scorers. He has notched up two hundreds and a half-century from four matches.

De Villiers needed a runner during his 52-run knock against India on Saturday during South Africa's thrilling 3 wicket win.
