South Africa coach Russell Domingo says Dale Steyn is a “champion” bowler and backs the pacer to return to top form.

Domingo was speaking as South Africa’s squad prepared to depart for a triangular limited-overs series in the Caribbean without their No. 1 quick bowler.

Steyn has struggled with a series of injuries over the last 12 months and has been rested for the tour by South Africa. Instead, he will get some match practice with Twenty20 stints for Glamorgan and in the Caribbean Premier League.

Steyn’s fitness struggles raised concerns last season in South Africa that, at 32, he might be approaching the end of his career.
