South Africa's Pacer Steyn Ruled Out of India Series

  • South African bowler Dale Steyn celebrates the wicket of Indian batsman Shikhar Dhawan on the first day of the first test between South Africa and India at Newlands Stadium in Cape Town South Africa Friday Jan. 5 2018

India fast bowler Umesh Yadav, who missed out from the playing XI for the ongoing Cape Town Test, managed to impress South Africa's experienced pacer Dale Steyn.

"He has done significant damage to the underside of his foot which is likely to take 4-6 weeks to recover".

With South Africa now leading by 142 runs with eight wickets still remaining, it is unlikely that Steyn will be required to bat - although Moosajee said that call could only be made once he sees the specialist.

It was meant to be preparation for the maiden pink-ball Test against Zimbabwe at St George's Park last week, but Steyn was once again ruled out with a viral infection. He couldn't complete his 18th over and was limping slightly as he headed to the dressing rooms at Newlands.

South African fast bowler Dale Steyn was forced off the field on Saturday.

"I feel my rhythm is quite good at the moment, but I'm not hitting my straps fully just yet". Before that, Steyn had a groin injury (November 2015) and another, less severe shoulder concern (December 2015) which kept him out of action for the first seven months of 2016.

But unless the tourists roll over notably limply in pursuit of whatever target they are set (SA boast a lead of 142 with eight wickets to play with) the remaining trio of Proteas quicks may have to put in some relatively back-bending work at the tail-end of this Test.

Steyn returned to test cricket for the match after 14 months on the sidelines with a career-threatening shoulder injury.South Africa's Aiden Markram (34) was the first wicket to fall in their second innings, having looked fluent at the crease until he top-edged a rising delivery from Hardik Pandya (2-17) to Bhuvneshwar Kumar at a deep point. It is important to note that this unfortunate injury was freakish because of the way he landed in the footholes.

Ironically, Steyn, with his two wickets in the Indian first innings, has 419 Test scalps and needs only three wickets more to go past Shaun Pollock as the highest wicket-taker in Tests for South Africa.
