Dale Steyn, Umesh Yadav talk tattoos in Cape Town

South African bowler Dale Steyn celebrates the wicket of Indian batsman Shikhar Dhawan on the first day of the first test between South Africa and India at Newlands Stadium in Cape Town South Africa Friday Jan. 5 2018

South Africa have picked up four fast bowlers including Dale Steyn and a spinner Keshav Maharaj.

"Understandably he was disappointed, but he will try his best to recover as quickly as possible".

This is Steyn's first Test for South Africa since November 2016, having represented the side in the Perth Test against Australia.

Having been roughed up by a barrage of short-pitch bowling from the excellent Rabada (3-34), the latter ended Pandya's stay at the wicket as he induced an edge to De Kock.The rest of the batsmen found it hard to score against the fast, accurate home bowling.

A team spokesman said the injury was being assessed and treated. This means Steyn won't be taking part in the rest of the match as well. He is unlikely to bowl in this Test again as the recovery period is between 4 to 6 weeks.

Naturally the revelation late on day two on Saturday that veteran speedster Steyn has an injured heel and is nearly certainly side-lined for the rest of the series will be taken strenuously into account as the combat moves onward.

LeBron James hoping Cleveland Cavaliers can straighten themselves out
Cleveland might not be that place anymore after this season. "The [Thomas] injury affected them a lot". The Cavaliers had a miserable shooting night, making just 31-of-89 attempts for 34.8 percent shooting.

The 34-year-old paceman, regarded as one of the game's great fast bowlers, has been plagued by problems with that shoulder and only played eight Tests in three years before his return this week.

However, Moosajee stressed that Steyn's latest injury was not related to any previous ailments.

He took two wickets - Shikhar Dhawan on the first day and Wriddhiman Saha on the second - and is three away from overtaking Shaun Pollock as South Africa's leading Test wicket-taker. "Otherwise Temba would have to bowl again", Rabada joked, even though Bavuma is not in the starting XI.

"At the moment it's quite tender and it's extremely uncomfortable to run", Moosajee said of Steyn's condition.

His lack of first-class game time was certainly an issue leading into this series-opener with India, but Steyn bowled with good pace and swing for 18.3 overs over the course of the past two days. "In fact, we'd probably like him to be non-weight bearing".

"Luckily this time we went with four seamers".
