Steyn may not bowl again in Test series against India

South Africa fast bowler Dale Steyn has been ruled out of the ongoing Test against India is set to miss the remainder of the series as well.

Steyn pulled up three balls into his 18th over after taking two for 51 in the first Test against India at Newlands. A decision on whether he would bat hadn't yet been made. It is also said that he will not be able to play the next 4-6 weeks.

Significantly, South Africa has strengthened its hold on India in the first Test match. There are fears the 34-year-old speedster's career might be up just as he approaches Pollock's record.

Steyn left the field just before the tea break and immediately after the delivery that caused the injury. "Just feeling very sympathetic for him".

The fast bowler has been sidelined since breaking a shoulder and tearing three major muscles while bowling against Australia at the WACA in Perth in November 2016.

"This unfortunate injury was freakish because of the way he landed in the footholds, and is in no way related to his bowling loads or not being match ready", he further added.

Olivier has appeared in five Tests for South Africa- all of them in 2017, Ngidi has played three T20Is since making his global debut in a match against Sri Lanka previous year.

Moosajee said the latest setback had nothing to do with his injury history or workload in the match.
