The 30-year-old came into the side for the Boxing Day Test in place of Rassie van der Dussen. Batting at number three, de Bruyn had scores of 12 and 28 in South Africa’s innings-and-182-run defeat in Melbourne. He also made headlines when Australian quick Mitchell Starc warned for backing up at the non-striker’s end during the second innings.

“Batter Theunis de Bruyn will miss the third #AUSvSA Test in Sydney as he returns home for the birth of his first child. We wish him everything of the best for this exciting part of his life,” Cricket South Africa (CSA) tweeted on
Saturday.

De Bruyn’s absence means either van der Dussen could make his way back to the playing XI or the the big-hitting reserve wicketkeeper Henrich Klaasen, who has played only one Test, may be given an opportunity. South African batters have struggled in this series. The visitors have been skittled out for scores of 152, 99, 189, and 204 in the
two Tests so far.
