Steyn, 35, was forced to withdraw from the South African squad due to a shoulder injury.
South Africa have named left-arm seamer Beuran Hendricks as his replacement after approval from the Event Technical committee. Fortunately, there is nothing serious to worry about as the superstar skipper has recovered well and is all set to take the field on June 5. India have to get their combination right as quickly as possible, for they begin the tournament with a string of tough games. "He needs love at the moment, he tried really hard to get fit for this campaign". And then when you give it back to him, he gets angry. Steyn, regarded by many as the best fast bowler of the current generation, has been struggling with injuries since 2015 and had to pull out of numerous matches and series over the last 3-4 years. The Indian batting lineup should be on the lookout for fast bowlers Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins, who could create a dent in the batting order early.
He was finally able to make a prolonged comeback a year ago and played several matches for South Africa.
Germany midfielder Toni Kroos had previously sent a signed Germany team jersey to Virat Kohli after he posted on Twitter that he would be supporting Die Mannschaft for the 2106 Euros. "It's going to be important for us not to point fingers or blame anyone", Sport24.co.za quoted Duminy, as saying. At the time, he had said he wanted football to grow in the country.
South Africa great Jaques Kallis believes taking advantage of potential first-match rustiness from India could be his former team's best hope of getting back on track. "When he is on the ground, he is competitive because he is passionate, the hunger is there and he wants to win every time". But those niggles and injuries are not just going his way. I understand how to go along with the expectations rather than saying I'm not. When Rashid khan found it he wished Asghar doesn't do well with the bat and returned the bat to him.
