South African pacer Dale Steyn suffered a freak injury while on a fishing adventure in Zimbabwe. Steyn was hurt near his left knee when the fishing hook got stuck in his flesh. Steyn uploaded a video of the doctor treating him in Zimbabwe. “Sometimes u get it wrong… #hooked on fishing” [sic] Steyn tweeted.
The South African team is scheduled to play a One-Day International series against Zimbabwe and will soon be joined by Australia for a tri-series. Steyn has been rested from the ODI series but will be part of the team during the tri-series.
South Africa started the Zimbabwe tour with a one-off Test which they won by a comfortable margin.
