South African fast bowler Dale Steyn will not bowl again in the opening Test against England at Kingsmead after his shoulder spasm failed to clear up overnight, officials said on Tuesday.

The decision is a further blow to the home side, who have their backs to the wall as they seek to avoid defeat in the first of the four-Test series.

Steyn bowled just under four overs in England's second innings on Monday and although a scan on his right shoulder revealed no tear, he was ruled out after experiencing discomfort before the start of the fourth day's play.
