Steyn taken to hospital for bruised left heel

South African speed star Dale Steyn who just made a comeback in International cricket after a long time has been taken to the hospital for a scan on his left heel after pulling up midway through his 18th over during South Africa’s first Test against India.


It didn’t seem serious until he stopped his run-up and immediately threw the ball to Vernon Philander to complete the over. Later, he walked out from the field.

After the tea break, Styen didn’t come to bowl again and it was known that he was taken to a nearby hospital to determine the extent of the injury and it is still to be know.

Cricket South Africa’s official twitter account tweeted: “Dale Steyn has a bruised left heel and has been taken for scans for further investigations. CSA will give an update when available.”

This is Steyn’s 2nd Test match since November 2016. After picking up a groin strain in the first Test of South Africa’s 2015 tour of India, the 34-year-old twice injured his right shoulder. Looks like Steyn and injury have some healthy relation with the Indian team.

Meanwhile, South Africa have already started to bat in their 2nd innings after bowling out India for 209 runs. Steyn bowled 17.3 overs and picked up 2 wickets conceding 51 runs before getting injured.
