Lesotho Times - - Sport -

CAPE TOWN — South African fast bowler Dale Steyn (pic­tured) is en­joy­ing his time play­ing for English county fran­chise Glam­or­gan in the T20 Blast.

The for­mer No 1Test bowler told the BBC that he is over­joyed at play­ing cricket again, say­ing: “I’m lov­ing it, just to feel that vibe again, feel that en­ergy flow about tak­ing wick­ets.

“Just to get back into that (wicket-tak­ing) mode, when you don’t do it for a while, you miss it, you al­most for­get how to do it.”

He has taken nine wick­ets so far for the Cardiff-based team in his last three T20 games, in­clud­ing four for 18 in Glam­or­gan’s 55-run win over Kent last week Fri­day (June 17).

“I’d love to win (fi­nal game), Glam­or­gan top of the log (table), and I hope I’ve come and added some kind of in­flu­ence on the guys’ game as well as the matches.

“But I think the guys have played ex­cel­lently so far, and I’ve learnt a lot also,” said Steyn, who is joined by fel­low South Africans Colin In­gram and Glam­or­gan’s skip­per Jacques Ru­dolph.

Steyn has come back since re­cov­er­ing from a shoul­der in­jury, which had him only play­ing one Indian Premier League match and two matches at the T20 World Cup.

The 32-year-old bowler was left out of South Africa’s one-day squad to the Caribbean for the tri-series that’s cur­rently tak­ing place. How­ever, South African coach Rus­sell Domingo has backed the ex­pe­ri­enced bowler to re­turn back to form.

Steyn will play his fi­nal game for Glam­or­gan on Fri­day (June 24) and then de­parts to play for the Ja­maica Tallawahs in the Caribbean Premier League (CPL), which starts on June 30. — Sport24
