He revealed this week that he is fully fit and is ready to get back into the middle.
“My arm is perfect, if anything its stronger than it was before because it’s (been) reinforced with a pin,” Steyn told Cricinfo.
“It’s 100 percent now. I’ve just got to start reminding myself how to bowl at high speeds because I haven’t done it for a year.”
Steyn is four Test wickets away from reaching the 421 mark which would tie him with former Proteas all-rounder Shaun Pollock as the all-time leading South African wicket-taker in Test cricket.
