Dale Steyn ruled out for up to six weeks

Will he get the nod for the first Test

"Understandably he was disappointed, but he will try his best to recover as quickly as possible".

He returned to play against New Zealand at home and then toured Australia, where he broke a bone in his shoulder on the second day of the Perth Test.

With South Africa now leading by 142 runs with eight wickets still remaining, it is unlikely that Steyn will be required to bat - although Moosajee said that call could only be made once he sees the specialist. "It is in no way related to his bowling loads or not being match ready", he added.

"During Dale's 18th over in his delivery stride he unfortunately landed awkwardly in the foot-holes, and this caused a significant strain to the foot leading to tissue damage on the under-side of the foot", South Africa team manager Mohammed Moosajee said.

It was meant to be preparation for the maiden pink-ball Test against Zimbabwe at St George's Park last week, but Steyn was once again ruled out with a viral infection.

Umesh missed out in the first Test as captain Virat Kohli chose to play four fast bowlers in Mohammed Shami, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, debutant Jasprit Bumrah and Hardik Pandya.

Gruden to coach NFL Raiders in record deal
Gruden replaced Joe Bugel after a 4-12 season in 1998 and was 38-26 in four seasons, including AFC West titles in 2000 and 2001. The previous coach Jack Del Rio was sacked after the last game of the season, and Gruden is set to interview with them Monday.

However, Moosajee stressed that Steyn's latest injury was not related to any previous ailments.

Naturally the revelation late on day two on Saturday that veteran speedster Steyn has an injured heel and is nearly certainly side-lined for the rest of the series will be taken strenuously into account as the combat moves onward.

Steyn was was getting into the groove as he had figures of 2 for 51 with wickets of opener Shikhar Dhawan and wicket-keeper Wriddhiman Saha during his comeback Test.

"It is quite tender and it's extremely uncomfortable to run. Otherwise Temba would have to bowl again", Rabada joked, even though Bavuma is not in the starting XI.

But didn't we see enough evidence in India's first innings at Newlands to suggest that "four quicks" is the likeliest way to undo the team atop the world's rankings over the course of the next few weeks? "We sat down at tea and thought about our game-plan and went around the wicket to stop his momentum".
