"With a fast bowler, a groin injury takes a little time to get right. We need him (Steyn) to be 100 per cent fit before we play him in a Test match," Birrell said.

While this has been a series dominated by spin, Steyn's loss was a huge blow to South Africa's chances. If South Africa are to finish a tough Test series on a high, they would pray for his fitness ahead of the fourth Test.
