Dale Steyn has been the backbone of the South African bowling attack for quite a while now and he has led the side from the front through his skillful display of fast bowling.
While talking to Business Day Steyn said that he finds it absolutely rubbish that retirement is looming around the corner for the fast bowler because he has played many consecutive test matches for his side and injuries are part and parcel of the game.
“It’s absolute rubbish,” Steyn told Business Day. “I played 48 Tests in a row, didn’t miss a single one, and now suddenly I’m an injury liability at the age of 32? It’s ridiculous. Injuries can happen to anybody but I’m still one of the fittest players in the squad and I have many, many overs left in me.”
He added that the test team is going through some major changes and being a senior pro in the side it is his responsibility to help out his team at this crucial point in time.
“The Test team is going through some huge changes and I want to help lead the way as one of the senior players. This is no time to turn your back and walk away, that’s the last thing on my mind.”
