Dale Steyn Speaks About His Injury, Hopes To Return After Six Months
A few days ago South Africa suffered a huge blow as their Star bowler Dale Steyn was Ruled out for the Series against Australia due to a shoulder injury. The news was also that he will be out of Action for 6-months.
Talking about the injury, he said: “I felt this pop or like a thud in my shoulder. There was a lot of pain. I had to go off the field and have an MRI. I did something very similar against England in December in a similar area but it wasn’t as bad. That was a stress reaction, which is like a very hairline little crack. This time it’s more like a fracture. It’s kind of broken the whole bone. I will probably have surgery and a plate in there. So we’re probably looking at a minimum of six months before I’m up and going again.”
When asked about his return to the field, he said, “The last time took about three months and I was up and running and ready to play. As the scheduling goes, there’s a lot of cricket to be played and people want you to play. I didn’t have the full time to recover. I have been dealing with this for quite some time and I was wanting to rush and get to the Twenty20 World Cup, I wanted to go to the IPL. I wanted to play. This time I have to take the time to let it heal properly,” he added.
We all hope he gets back soon.
