Cape Town - Proteas fast bowler, Dale Steyn, has been passed fit and will be available for selection for the upcoming Test series against England starting at Sahara Stadium Kingsmead in Durban on December 26. 

Steyn, who missed the majority of the Test series against India after sustaining a groin injury in the first match in Mohali, was given the green light after a comprehensive fitness assessment in Cape Town on Thursday.

Proteas team manager, Dr Mohammed Moosajee said: “Dale has put a lot of work into his training and rehab since his return from India so we are very happy to have him back from injury. He was put through a thorough fitness test on Thursday by Cape Cobras physiotherapist, Shane Jabaar, which included two bowling spells at match intensity, fielding drills, sprints and agility tests. He came through the tests without any discomfort and will be available for selection for the first Test match against England starting in Durban next week.”
