Dale Steyn eager to get back into action

South African fast bowler Dale Steyn is all set to return to competitive cricket, after being away from the game for close to three months, thanks to a host of injury problems.

“After the Champions Trophy in England, people will remember I didn't play a lot of cricket there. I had a side strain, groin, glute and neck and a bit of an ankle problem. I ended up with about five injuries walking away from that tournament”, Steyn revealed to the South African Press Association.

Steyn added that he had returned to training to get back into shape for South Africa’s upcoming Test series against Pakistan, starting October 14 in Abu Dhabi.

"I've got back to gym, running and bowling. Two sessions a day for an hour and a half in the morning, then back again in the afternoon”, the 30-year old said.

The world’s No.1 Test bowler is leaving on September 10, to join Sunrisers Hyderabad for the Champions League T20.

"There's nothing better than game time, playing a 20/20 game you're still out in the field on your feet. You're still bowling your overs at high intensity. There's nothing better than getting a bit of game time”.
