Johannesburg: South African pace spearhead Dale Steyn is doubtful for the remainder of the three-match Test series against Australia after suffering a recurrence of a shoulder injury during the ongoing opening game at the WACA Ground in Perth. The 33-year-old sustained the injury in the 38th over of the Australia s first innings when he went down wincing in pain while holding his shoulder after bowling to Usman Khawaja, prompting the physio to immediately arrive at the scene. Steyn had started the Day Two on a bright note by dismissing David Warner for 97 before being forced to walk off the field, Sport24 reported.

Reflecting on Steyn s injury, a team spokesperson said the paceman was sent to a nearby hospital for scans and further treatment. Injury-prone Steyn, who took 417 wickets in 85 Tests he played, had earlier got his shoulder injured while surfing last December and eventually missed the opportunity to represent his country in majority of the home series against England. He has also been recovering from a groin strain. On Day Two, second session of the first Test between Australia and South Africa, Proteas stunned hosts with a solid fightback triggered by their bowlers which reduced Australia s lead to two runs.

From being 158 for no loss, Australia lost their wickets in hand by adding by 86 runs. David Warner was the first batsman to get dismissed after which Australia also lost their skipper, Steven Smith. Well set opener, Shaun Marsh, departed just before the stroke of lunch for the score of 63.
