South Africa’s fast bowler Dale Steyn has not played professional cricket for a year after breaking a bone in his right should in 2016.
He is not set to make a comeback and will feature in Titan’s upcoming CSA T20 Challenge on Wednesday.
Steyn told Titans’ reporter: “I am ready to go. Yes, I haven’t played in a year, but there are no massive expectations. I am just looking forward to playing again and feeling part of the game.”
He added: “I’m not asking people to sit back and think I’m going to bowl at 150 kmph and that I’m going to take five wickets. If I can get through the game with minimal damage in terms of economy rate and pick up a wicket or two that would be great.”
Steyn’s team will battle against the Knights in which David Miller also plays. Steyn mentioned about Miller’s fastest T20I hundred against Bangladesh and told that he knows what damage can Miller do.
“There’s momentum with both teams. Dave’s a great batter – he’s not the kind of guy that comes out of the block and goes from ball one. Even when he scored the 100 against Bangladesh, he offered up a few early chances – and he’ll tell you that himself.”
