Dale Steyn sets T20 World Cup in Australia on his agenda


Veteran South African pacer Dale Steyn has eyed ICC T20 World Cup 2020 in Australia on his agenda and will again try to revive his form in the limited-overs series against England in February.

“I know I’ll be part of the T20 series against England, that was the last conversation I’ve had. I get a nice two-week break, then straight into it again.,” he told to Australian cricket website.

I’ll be around for the ODIs but to be honest, I don’t know how much I’ll play the ODIS, I’ll be there for that and then definitely the T20s,” He said

“T20 World Cup is very much on my agenda, I’m starting to enjoy my cricket a lot more now, I think four overs is a lot easier on the body than the Test matches are,” Steyn added.

Steyn thinks that despite Kagiso Rabada’s presence in the proteas bowling attack, his experience in the T20 mega event will help other bowlers around him.

“Kagiso Rabada is very young to lead the attack at 24, and the next bowlers to come in are all younger than him, I think he needs somebody that’s there is experienced to look around,”

He appreciated that most of the players came out from Mzansi Super League (MSL) but his old mates including Ab De Villiers and Imran Tahir were performing too that will make his case stronger for the selection.

South Africa will face England in the three ODIs and as many T20Is after the Test series slated to be held between 4 February and 16 February.
