South Africa pace bowler Dale Steyn has revealed that he has fully recovered from his shoulder injury and is ready for the three-match Twenty20 series against Australia next month.
Steyn has been out of action for two months after he injured his shoulder in the first Test against England in Durban in December. However, he enjoyed a lot of success in his comeback match as he took five wickets in Western Province Cricket Club’s grade cricket match against St Augustine on Saturday.
“I will be fine to play against Australia,” Steyn told Independent Media on Saturday. “All the talk about the injury can take a sideline – I’ve been fine for the last three weeks, and that’s why I’m playing today. If I was injured, I wouldn’t be playing today. So, [I’m] ready to take on the Aussies and everything should be fine.”
The three Twenty20 Internationals between South Africa and Australia will be held on March 4, 6 and 9.
