Pakistan v SA

The most important 'hammie' in the Proteas team

2013-10-21 15:16
Cape Town - Proteas fans held their collective breath on Monday with the news that speedster Dale Steyn hasn't been able to train ahead of the second and final Test against Pakistan in Dubai, starting on Wednesday.

The Proteas, who are 1-0 down in the two-Test series after losing by seven wickets in Abu Dhabi last Thursday, are already reeling from the news that star batsman Hashim Amla could miss the Test to be with his wife who is due to give birth to their second child.

Steyn cut short his training session on Sunday after feeling tightness in his right hamstring. He also did not train on Monday.

Team manager Mohammed Moosajee said they need a 24-hour period before they can determine exactly what's wrong.

Here's hoping the No 1-ranked Test bowler pulls through by Wednesday morning!
