South Australia Redbacks pacer Shaun Tait has been ruled out of the Matador One-Day Cup due to a groin  injury. South Australia’s injury woes grew longer with Tait’s unavailability as skipper Johan Botha and keeper Tim Ludeman too are out with injuries. Tait will head to Adelaide to determine the extent of his injury.

“It was very disappointing. He was chasing a ball in the outfield, strained his groin and unfortunately that is the end of the Matador Cup for ‘Taity’. He goes back home now and we will reassess that in a week’s time,” coach Darren Berry was quoted as saying on the official website of Big Bash.

Joe Mennie, Daniel Worrall and Kelvin Smith have been added to the squad. South Australia are winless in their four matches in the tournament.
