Dale Steyn is going to return to the team via the Test series against Sri Lanka. Although the South African team’s star bowler Dale Steyn has not played a lot of cricket in the last two years due to injury, he still has not given up and he wants to play for his country.
Stan, who returned to the team for the tour to Sri Lanka, has made it clear that he still has enough cricket left in him and he wants to play in the 2019 World Cup in England.
Stan, who played 86 Tests for South Africa, said in an interview with ESPN Cricinfo, “I am 35 years old and still there is enough cricket left in me, I think I can play for 38 years. I still want to play the World Cup in 2019. For that, I have to play with the white ball and I hope that by December I will get a lot of matches and after that, I will go to the World Cup In this goal in mind for Africa.
My career is still many places that I want to achieve. 100 Test replay will be great and if I got 500 wickets, could not have asked for more than that to me. ”
Dale Steyn played his last international match against India in Cape Town. In that match, Steyn suffered a foot injury, after which he was out of the entire series. Although Stan had taken two wickets in that match and also scored 16 runs with the bat.
However, he has got a place in the series of two Tests in Sri Lanka. After taking three wickets in this series, Steyn will become the highest wicket-taker bowler from South Africa. Steyn now has 419 wickets and ahead of him is just former great captain Shawn Pollock (421). If Stan is fit, then surely it will be able to achieve this end.
