According to Cricket South Africa website, De Villiers sustained the injury to his right index finger during the third Test match against India and will require up to two weeks to make a full recovery.

The selectors have opted not to name a replacement," the CSA quoted in a media release uploaded on its website.

He is expected to be fit for the fourth match, the pink ODI at the Wanderers, for which he is one of the ambassadors.
