Steyn out of rest of 1st test and likely series vs


South Africa fast bowler Dale Steyn has been ruled out of the ongoing Test against India is set to miss the remainder of the series as well.

In a major blow to South Africa, team's one of the efficient bowler Dale Steyn has been injured in the first Test being played in Johannesburg's Newlands.

Initial scans showed tissue damage around the bottom of Steyn's foot and near the heel, Moosajee said, and Steyn wouldn't be able to bowl again in the test in Cape Town. "We'll add him to the squad and then when we get to Pretoria and have a couple of training days we will have a look and make a decision", he added. During his 18th over, Steyn sustained a serious tissue damage in his heel when he landed. "He is unable to do much at the moment so he will be reassessed in 4 - 6 weeks". Significantly, Steyn's career has been greatly affected due to injuries.

A team spokesman said the injury was being assessed and treated.

Trump denied in a pair of tweets on Friday that he made the comment, but referred to Haiti as a "very poor and troubled country". And despite the president's opposition, Durbin said lawmakers still plan to vote on a plan reforming DACA next week.

Steyn, who is 10th on the list of all-time wicket-takers in test matches, was playing a test for the first time since breaking down with a right-shoulder injury in Australia in November 2016.

He was careful to quell speculation that the problem could have been caused by Steyn‚ who before the match had bowled only 12 overs in whites since his shoulder injury‚ had returned to action too soon.

Olivier has appeared in five Tests for South Africa- all of them in 2017, Ngidi has played three T20Is since making his worldwide debut in a match against Sri Lanka past year.
