Brisbane, Australia – JP Duminy has taken some of the gloss off South Africa's brilliant opening day in the first Test against Australia with an injury scare after the end of Friday's play at the Gabba.

The lower order batsman Duminy was warming down by kicking a rugby ball around with teammates on the playing field, after the Proteas reached stumps at 255 for two, when he suffered a mishap.

Duminy, 28, a star of South Africa's historic 2-1 series victory in Australia four years ago, was carried off the ground by medical staff.

A team spokesperson said Duminy had been taken to hospital for scans on a left ankle.

Duminy could play an important role for the Proteas in the remainder of the first Test with his off-spin after leg-spinner Imran Tahir was left out of the team for the Gabba opener. – Sapa-AFP
