South Africa’s representation is rather limited. And you better catch them early because they’re coming home early too for national duty.

Unlike previous seasons, South Africa’s representation in the glitzy Indian Premier League (IPL) is limited to eight players.

2017’s edition starts on Wednesday.

That said, three Proteas who have been regular faces in the tournament, won’t be seen.

Quinton de Kock needs “protective” rest for an injured right index finger, while JP Duminy and Morne Morkel have decided to skip the action.

Those two would rather want to focus on the Proteas’ upcoming tour of England.

In fact, all the South African players will be leaving the tournament early to prepare for the four-month trip.

Here’s who to look out for. (CLICK ON A PLAYER’S PORTRAIT TO REVEAL DETAILS)
