    Morne Morkel goes for scan on injured right shoulder

    The South African team said Morkel hurt his shoulder diving for a ball while fielding on the first day.

    Centurion: South Africa fast bowler Morne Morkel missed the start of the second day of the first Test against Australia to go for a scan on an injured right shoulder.

    The South African team said Morkel hurt his shoulder diving for a ball while fielding on the first day.

    South Africa's bowling attack was left with only two front-line seamers in Dale Steyn and Vernon Philander on Thursday as Australia took their total past 300 with six wickets in hand.

    There was no immediate diagnosis on the extent of Morkel's injury.
