Dale Steyn has indicated that he could make his Test return soon.
The 34-year-old, injured since South Africa’s first Test against Australia in Perth in November 2016, has been recovering from a shoulder injury and there has been ongoing speculation regarding his return.
A recent Instagram post by the speedster in his whites suggests his comeback is near.
The Proteas had to do without their star seamer for victories against Sri Lanka and New Zealand, but it was evident that they missed the paceman in their embarrassing tour of England.
Steyn currently sits second on South Africa’s all-time wicket-takers list with 417 scalps, just four behind Shaun Pollock at the summit.
The Proteas’ next assignment will be the home Test series against Bangladesh, which starts on 28 September. Will we see Steyn in the starting XI?
