Steyn enjoying England stint
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
