“The ankle is still swollen up but is less painful at the moment. I received some treatment from Shane Jabaar this morning.
“I injured it initially on the fourth day (of the Sunfoil Series match against the Chevrolet Warriors) in Port Elizabeth,” he added.
Kemp has had a frustrating year with a litany of injuries – including his wrist, hamstring and ankle – curbing his progress.
“It is such a pity, as I am hitting the ball as well as I have ever done,” he added.
The 37-year old player represented South Africa in 85 One Day Internationals and four tests and boasts a highest score of 100 in an international limited-over match.
Kemp said although the call-ups to the South Africa A-team and return to Newlands from Benoni was a factor in their defeat against the Dolphins, the Cobras have not been at their best lately.
Perhaps this is a blessing in disguise and will serve as a strong motivational factor in the build-up to the final on Friday.
Kemp averages 49 in the Momentum One Day Cup competition in the 2014/2015-season and has taken four wickets in four matches at an economy rate of 3.68 this season.
As a bowler, he has produced a series of good performances and has been an excellent back-up to Rory Kleinveldt.
Andrew Puttick, comfortably the Cobras’ best batsman in the Momentum One Day Cup competition this season, said on Tuesday his injured quad is responding well to treatment and he is extremely confident he will take the field in the final at Newlands on Friday.
