Comeback from a career-threatening injury is never easy and that's why South African pace ace Dale Steyn might not turn out to be as big a threat for India in next month's highly-anticipated Test series, feels senior spinner Harbhajan Singh. Steyn was out of competitive cricket for a year after suffering a shoulder dislocation during a Test match against Australia last year.

"Dale Steyn is unarguably the best fast bowler of the last 10 years, but coming back into international cricket is not easy. A Test match against Zimbabwe will not exactly be an indicator of what he can do against India," Harbhajan told PTI. "Look at the Indian batting line up. We have so much quality. Murali Vijay, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane, Rohit Sharma. This is perhaps among the best line-up in world cricket. "For both Steyn and Morkel, it will be a challenge to stop this line-up especially when they themselves will need to get into the groove," the 'Turbanator' assessed.
