Cape Town - Proteas fast bowler Dale Steyn’s return to competitive cricket will be facilitated by a club appearance this weekend.

Steyn will play for Western Province Cricket Club (WPCC) in a Western Province Cricket Association premier league fixture against St Augustine Cricket Club on Saturday.

Sidelined by a shoulder injury, Steyn has not played international cricket since December last year, but is determined to be ready for next month’s three Twenty20 internationals against Australia - and the ICC World Twenty20 in India.

“Dale will play for WPCC on Saturday. But he will only play the first day of the two-day fixture,” Steyn’s agent, Dave Rundle, told Club Cricket SA.

“He wants game time before the World Twenty20, and this will provide him with that. He has all the necessary clearance needed to play.”

WPCA club and facilities co-ordinator, Thulani Zideba, added: “The local leagues committee has approved Steyn’s participation in the fixture between WPCC and St Augustine CC.”

The 32-year-old Steyn will play for a formidable WPCC unit, who lie second to Cape Town Cricket Club in the WPCA premier league standings. St Augustine Cricket Club, meanwhile, are in fifth position on the 10-team log.

The match will be played at the Wally Wilson Oval at Western Province Cricket Club in Rondebosch.
