A J Penn
Scott Styris tore a cartilage in his right knee on the eve of the first Test began. Andrew Penn was then fit enough to re-join the tour, only to strain his side injury again in the first match he played on tour.
Paul Wiseman then sprained his ankle in the warm-up before the match against Boland and did not play again on tour. Glen Sulzbergerflew back to South Africa to cover for him but played in only one side match.
Because of his knee injury Chris Cairns returned to New Zealand at the end of the one-day series on 5 November 2000, along with one-day specialists Roger Twose, Chris Harris, Chris Nevin and Geoff Allott (who was in any case suffering a back injury and could not play further).
Scott Styris injured his left knee and Paul Wiseman injured an ankle, putting them both out of the tour and necessitating an early return home.
Andrew Penn returned home from South Africa on 30 November with a repetition of his side strain.
The team left South Africa from Johannesburg on approx 13 December 2000.
