Dubai – Dale Steyn, the world's top Test bowler, will be ready when the Proteas begin hunting 10 Pakistani wickets in the International Stadium on Monday.

Steyn gave the South African squad a big fright on Sunday when he was able to complete only two overs with the second new ball in the Pakistani innings of 248.

He was removed from the attack shortly after taking the wicket of Adnan Akmal.

According to Mohammed Moosajee, the South African team doctor, he received treatment for a stiff right arm.

"Dale felt a slight stiffness in the arm after he threw a ball in from the outfield," said Moosajee.

"He should be ready to bowl in the second innings."

Steyn returned to the field last week after being out due to injury for over two months.

He will play a leading role when the Proteas try to dismiss Pakistan for a second time and leave for Abu Dhabi with a series advantage of 1-0.

The SA tour side is lead by 272 runs, with eight remaining wickets.
