Injured South African quick Dale Steyn is eyeing to make his comeback to cricket with a stint with English county Hampshire in June.
Dale Steyn has been out of the game for the most part of the last two years, thanks to a plethora of injuries. “I could get through 12 or 15 overs but that’s not enough to be competitive in a Test match,” he said to SuperSport television.
Steyn currently sits at 419 Test wickets, just 2 wickets shy of Shaun Pollock’s all-time record of 421 Test wickets, for South Africa. Steyn will have a chance to break this record and become the highest Test wicket-taker for South Africa, when Proteas tour Sri Lanka in July and August 2018.
He said, “The Proteas don’t play for quite a while. I’m going to take another month off. I’m not going to the IPL (Indian Premier League). I’m looking to go over to Hampshire in June to play a little bit of cricket, then Sri Lanka in July.”
