Dale Steyn resumes bowling at nets, all set for 3rd Test against England

New Delhi: Premier fast bowler Dale Steyn is all set to make a comeback to boost South Africa's chances in the ongoing Test series against England.

The 32-year-old right-arm fast-bowler missed the second Test at Cape Town due to a shoulder injury, which he sustained during the Boxing Day match.

Steyn on Tuesday tweeted "Start bowling again today. #lekker".

South Africa lost the first Test at Durban by 241 runs with the hosts missing the second-ranked bowler in their armoury.

In the second Test, which is heading for a high-soaring draw, England batsmen toyed with an inexperienced South African bowling attack. Visitors declared their first innings at 629/6 with Ben Stokes scoring a record-breaking 258 off mere 198 deliveries.

However, reports suggest that Vernon Philander's participation is still doubtful as he is still recovering from torn ankle ligaments.
