Kolkata:

In-form South African batsman AB de Villiers has undergone a scan on a left thigh injury ahead of Tuesday's World Cup match against Ireland at Eden Gardens in Kolkata.

De Villiers suffered the injury during his half-century in South Africa's three-wicket victory over India in Nagpur on Saturday and was forced to bat with a runner.

The middle-order batsman is the tournament's third-highest scorer with 318 runs after Indian openers Virender Sehwag (327) and Sachin Tendulkar (324). He has already made two hundreds and one half-century in four matches.

De Villiers, originally named in the squad as a wicketkeeper-batsman, did not keep wickets in the last two matches.
