Dale Steyn is expected to return to cricket in the Ram Slam T20 challenge and has been picked in the Titan’s 13 man squad for the second match of the competition against knights on Wednesday. The Titans beat the Lions in their opening game on Sunday, where Steyn carried drinks and reunited with his team-mates after seven years at the Cape Town-based Cobras.

The 34-year-old was suffering from the shoulder injury for the long time sustained in the first Test against Australia in Perth in November 2016, is set to make a comeback. If all goes well he will make a return to national side.

Steyn is just five wickets away to break the record of veteran pace bowler of South Africa Shaun Pollock in the Test.

 “I am ready to go. Yes, I haven’t played in a year, but there are no massive expectations. I am just looking forward to playing again and feeling part of the game,” Steyn told the Titans’ official website.

“I’m not asking people to sit back and think I’m going to bowl at 150 kilometers per hour and that I’m going to take five wickets.

“If I can get through the game with minimal damage in terms of economy rate and pick up a wicket or two that would be great.”
