Steyn won't bowl further in first Test, could miss rest of series

Will he get the nod for the first Test

Dale Steyn might've made his mark again but his return to Test cricket ended in dismay on Saturday after he limped off midway through his 18 over in the first Test against India at Newlands.

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

"It's a pitch you have to graft on, you need a bit of luck and eventually there will be a ball with your name on it. Pandya was dropped, but he played well, he took a bit of a gamble but he likes to play his natural game".

Steyn, who has been plagued by injuries over the last three years and was playing his first Test in more than a year, hurt his left foot when he landed awkwardly in a foothole on one delivery, South Africa manager and team doctor Mohammed Moosajee said. "You could see how much he was enjoying himself out there".

An initial comeback was stalled when Steyn hurt his shoulder in the Boxing Day Test against England, before he aggravated it at the Waca.

The 34-year-old paceman, regarded as one of the game's great fast bowlers, has been plagued by problems with that shoulder and only played eight Tests in three years before his return this week.

He only returned to competitive cricket during the recent RamSlam T20 Challenge for the Titans, and bowled two spells for the South African Invitation XI with a pink ball at Boland Park last month. This means Steyn won't be taking part in the rest of the match as well.

Steyn's wickets helped South Africa dismiss India for 209 in their reply to the hosts' 286 at Newlands.

He even claimed two wickets to inch to within three Shaun Pollock's all-time national record of 421. It is important to note that this unfortunate injury was freakish because of the way he landed in the footholes. CSA will seek the advice of a leading ankle surgeon to see if Steyn's recovery could be sped up, but will likely adopt a cautious approach to monitoring his comeback. Steyn is not going to bowl in the match, but may bat if needed. "In fact, we'd probably like him to be non-weight bearing".
