Steyn said he was fully fit and pain-free. He had not tried to bowl at express pace on Wednesday, concentrating on finding his rhythm without revealing too much to the Zimbabweans in case he was picked for the Test. That, though, seems likely because Steyn will only play the first two days of the current game before joining the South African Test squad in Port Elizabeth. "I am still fitter than the youngest guys in the side," he said. "It was just about getting through this year and trying to decide whether I still wanted to do it... I'll play until I'm not good enough or someone's better than me." "Every time someone talks about a record I get injured," he added. "So I'm not bothered. Let's just go play. Let's see what happens."
