Cape Town - Proteas fast bowler Dale Steyn may play for the South Africa 'A' side in a series against England 'A'.

Steyn, 33, is still integral to the Proteas pace attack heading into their Test series against England starting in July.

The paceman has been injured since November last year after sustaining a shoulder injury in Perth during the Australian Test series, which required surgery.

He sat out of this year's edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) to focus on regaining his fitness for the bumper South African cricket season ahead.

According to SuperSport, Steyn is now preparing to be included in the SA 'A' side for the games against England.

"My rehab is going well. I have done deep training for a month or so," said Steyn

"I am running fit and planning to go on the South Africa 'A' trip in June."

The SA 'A' team will play three 50 overs matches against the England Lions as well as a four-day unofficial Test matches.

Steyn needs four Test wickets to reach 421 and tie former paceman Shaun Pollock as the leading South African wicket-taker in Tests.

The Proteas are scheduled to play three ODIs, three Twenty20 internationals and four Tests in the UK during a tour that stretches into August.

The first Test between England and South Africa begins on July 6 at Lord's.
