Markram has been sidelined by a wrist injury sustained during last week's second Test in Pune.

The incident occurred after Markram was given out leg before for a duck in the second Test and chose not to review the umpire's decision.

The embattled Proteas opener, who's only scored 43 runs in four innings on the tour, "in a moment of frustration with his own performance, he lashed out at a solid object, resulting in his injury", Cricket South Africa said in a statement.

Markram has endured a hard tour of India that ended with a pair in Pune.

Other than India's opening batsmen, captain Virat Kohli is also in my team as the third Indian batsman.

South Africa haven't called up a replacement, meaning either Zubayr Hamza or Heinrich Klaasen will come in, though the most likely scenario is Theunis de Bruyn moving up from No 3 to open the batting.

"A CT scan of Aiden Markram's wrist showed a fracture involving the wrist bones".

"The medical team has therefore ruled him out of the next Test match against India".

India will now lock horns with South Africa in the third Test, beginning October 19 at JSCA International Stadium Complex in Ranchi Jharkhand. It's unacceptable in a Proteas environment and to let the team down is what hurts me the most.

"When you get runs in the first innings anything from there is possible".

A shoulder injury will keep Indian wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav out of the third Test against South Africa, the country´s cricket board said Friday.

Markram joins an ignominious club that includes England firebrand Ben Stokes and Aussie allrounder Mitchell Marsh.
