Cape Town - Proteas management have confirmed that Dale Steyn will not bowl again in the first innings of the third Test against Australia on Sunday.

LIVE UPDATES: SA v Australia - Day 2

As it happened: SA v Oz Day 1

Steyn left the field on day one (Saturday) at 14:19, with a 'tweaked' right hamstring.

The bowler would not be allowed to return to bowl for the same amount of time he spent off the field as the team physiotherapist took the time to work on his hamstring.

With the total time spent off the field, even if Steyn recovered, he would not be allowed back on the field during the first innings, said team management.
