Dale Steyn picked for Sri Lanka Tests


South Africa's faith in Dale Steyn to return to peak fitness and form in international cricket was restated yesterday, when the fast bowler was named in the 15-man Test squad for next month's tour of Sri Lanka.

Steyn's last appearance for the Proteas came in the first Test against India at Newlands at the start of the year, which he was unable to complete when he limped out of the second innings with a heel injury.

Selection convener Linda Zondi says that that a key factor in their selection process was to cover all their bases and all possible conditions that they may encounter in Sri Lanka.
