In ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 also, Steyn was in the final South African squad for the tournament. But unfortunately the shoulder injury forced him to sit out from the tournament without playing a single game.
Now he has got a big boost as Melbourne Stars signed him for the upcoming Big Bash League. He is expected to play 6 games in the league. The fast bowler is aiming to make a come back into the team ahead of ICC T20 World Cup 2020 which will be played in Australia.
“Obviously, the first prize is always to play for your country. Representing South Africa is the only thing I’ve ever done for my whole career so far, so to get back into that team is my top priority. Winning a World Cup medal for your country would be a big highlight,” Dale Steyn said as per ANA (African News Agency).
He also thanked the Cricket South Africa for allowing him to play BBL, as the board doesn’t allow players often to play in all leagues. The fast bowler also hoping to get some good rhythm in BBL which will be a great thing for ICC T20 World Cup 2020.
“They’re pretty tight on not allowing players to go and play in the Big Bash, but knowing that I’m not available for the Tests, wanting to keep me fit, and also having one eye on the T20 World Cup at the back-end of next year, they probably felt like it was a good call. This is great because it keeps me in the running for that World Cup. If I can go over to Australia and get some more experience in those conditions, that could be beneficial.”
