Dale Steyn taken to hospital after injury scare

"It's never nice for Dale because he's just come back from injury", said Steyn's fellow South Africa fast bowler Kagiso Rabada. But knowing Dale like we know him and you know him, he understands that he is going to try his best to recover as quickly as he can because he wants to be out there. CSA will seek the advice of a leading ankle surgeon to see if Steyn's recovery could be sped up, but will likely adopt a cautious approach to monitoring his comeback.

Having been roughed up by a barrage of short-pitch bowling from the excellent Rabada (3-34), the latter ended Pandya's stay at the wicket as he induced an edge to De Kock.The rest of the batsmen found it hard to score against the fast, accurate home bowling.

Soon after, Tea was taken, but Steyn did not return after the break.

"But he will not be able to bowl for at least four more weeks. It also means he could be out of the series", said South African team doctor Mohammed Moosajee. Before that, Steyn had a groin injury (November 2015) and another, less severe shoulder concern (December 2015) which kept him out of action for the first seven months of 2016.

Moosajee emphasised that the injury was in "no way related to his bowling loads or previous injuries", of which there have been several in the past two years.

Steyn returned to test cricket for the match after 14 months on the sidelines with a career-threatening shoulder injury.South Africa's Aiden Markram (34) was the first wicket to fall in their second innings, having looked fluent at the crease until he top-edged a rising delivery from Hardik Pandya (2-17) to Bhuvneshwar Kumar at a deep point.

"At the moment it's quite tender and it's extremely uncomfortable to run", Moosajee said of Steyn's condition. "In fact, we'd probably like him to be non-weight bearing".

"It's a pitch you have to graft on, you need a bit of luck and eventually there will be a ball with your name on it. Pandya was dropped, but he played well, he took a bit of a gamble but he likes to play his natural game".

His lack of first-class game time was certainly an issue leading into this series-opener with India, but Steyn bowled with good pace and swing for 18.3 overs over the course of the past two days.
