South Africa injury watch: Steyn, Ngidi, Duminy and more


The waiting wait for South Africa's update on Dale Stain's injured right shoulder continues, but the quick bowler saw an expert in Cape Town since his early return from the IPL. In two weeks, the proteases will meet before the World Cup, and the selectors will have a potential replacement by May 23 if Stein is not suitable until then.

"As it stands, we are aware that Dale Stein has seen a shoulder specialist since he returned from India," said Lionel Zondi, coordinator of the ESPNcricinfo national selection panel. "But at the moment we're just waiting for our medical team to keep us up-to-date on its progress, it's still going to meet with the staff at the camp on the 12th, and as the selection panel we'll guide you through the medical staff and then take it away."

Zondi said coach Otis Gibson would be part of the decision as well. "Otis is also an expert from the point of view of bowling, so he will definitely take Dale for a run on the net to see how he does with his shoulder and how far he will have to go. We have enough time before the 23rd of May to decide whether we need to change the team or No, but now this is where we are. "

Stein, 35, played two games for Royal Cheng Lang in Bangalore before his right shoulder – which had previously been badly injured – flared up. He was already in the squad of the World Cup of South Africa and was expected to lead the attack alongside Kagisu Rabada and Lungi Nagidi, with Enrique Norton as a backup.

Sonar choice for Linda Zondi

Nortje is recovering from an injury and told ESPNcricinfo that he bowled six collections in a match against the Afghan team at the academy last week and that he is "still busy with rehab and construction approaching the bowling gym.

Ng, who recovered from the tension of the muscle grade on his side, also has some legs and legs against the side of Afghanistan tour. JP Duminy's reconstruction of shoulder surgery continued, and he returned to competitive action with Cape Cobras at the tail end of the T20 CSA challenge. However, the Steyne news has yet to be discovered, and in the meantime CSA has potential substitutes for stand-up – although they do not want to say exactly who is still.
