The tough times for South Africa are going to see the end as their star players returns to the squad. South Africa’s speedster Dale Steyn last played for South Africa was against Australia in Perth last year. He suffered right shoulder injury during the match against Australia.

Dale Steyn is all set to make a comeback along with Vernon Philander and Lungi Ngidi. He recently made a comeback in competitive cricket on November 15 against Knights in the Ram Slam T20 Challenge.

South Africa is going to play the test series against Zimbabwe before facing India and Australia. The South Africa – Zimbabwe test match will begin on December 26 and its also the first day-night test in South Africa. Before that Zimbabwe test match, Dale Steyn is looking to prove his fitness.

“Steyn has started playing. He played three games for the Titans in our domestic T20 competition. We are resting him for a while so that he can come back and play international cricket. His injury is virtually over and he is ready to play. At the moment, we want to ensure that he is not over-bowling and coming back too much, too soon. Steyn will probably come back and bowl in the knockout stages of the T20 competition,” said Dr. Shuaib Manjra, the head of Cricket South Africa medical committee.

“Morne still has the injury but he should be back to playing in the first week of December. All of our bowlers should be ready before India gets here. Don’t be too happy about it,” Dr. Manjra sent out a warning.

“Vernon is bowling, Wayne Parnell is coming back to bowl and Morris is close to coming back to bowl as well. Morkel and Steyn will surely be available for selection for the India series,” he concluded.
