Melbourne: There won’t be any respite for the Indian batsmen as South Africa’s numero uno fast bowler Dale Steyn looked fit and set to go out all guns blazing at Virat Kohli and Co, when the two teams meet in the cricket World Cup group league match here on Sunday.

Steyn, who was suffering from sinus-related problems, yesterday went full blast at the nets, as he bowled for more than half-hour with Hashim Amla, Quinton de Kock, David Miller facing him with lot of caution.
Steyn dished out everything during his session. There were fuller deliveries, slower ones and the occasional bouncers which tested the Proteas batsman. In fact, De Kock was hit just above the abdomen region as he missed a short delivery that didn't kick up but had enough pace to hurt him. The left-hander did look in some sort of pain. He was soon back in business bowling his stuff and troubling his teammates.
