Dale Steyn to Take Limited-Overs Retirement Post 2019 World Cup in England
The veteran pace star of South Africa, Dale Steyn says he would retire from international cricket post the 2019 World Cup in England and Wales. The fast bowler got plagued by various injuries from the last couple of years and thus wished to draw curtains on his career on a high note.
While speaking at a promotional event on Thursday (July 26), the ace bowler of South Africa said,
“I will be trying to get to that World Cup (in England). But after the World Cup, I don’t see myself playing white ball cricket for South Africa. By the time the next World Cup comes, I will be 40,”
His come back against Sri Lanka
The 35-year old, Dale Steyn was out from the competitive cricket till last November. He suffered a massive shoulder injury on the tour of Australia in 2016, which left a derailing influence on his cricketing career.
While going through the healing process, Steyn was expected to make a comeback in the mid-summer.
However, his injury took a little more time to get heal, as he got chance to come back to Sri Lanka seriously. Unfortunately, Dale Steyn suffered another injury which ruled him out from the remainder of the series.
Dale Steyn is optimistic to find himself in the World Cup Squad
Dale Steyn is optimistic to board the flight for the 2019 World Cup. He is hopeful his experience would help him to get a call in the UK bound mega event.
“If you look at the (SA) batting line-up, our top six have played 1,000 games, but lower half – from eight to eleven who are currently playing – not even 150 games. You need to draw on experience.
“I hope that will be my trump card when the selection comes to the World Cup. I may not necessarily play all the time. But I think my experience will help with me just being there,” he said.
