Dale Steyn international career is been damaged by the injuries, despite being fully fit and making himself available for the India tour, he was not included in the T20 squad for the India tour.
Even the selectors, while announcing the squads for the India tour have not mentioned the reason behind his non-selection.
In a recent tweet, Steyn has made it very clear that he made himself available for the selection.
“I did… Obviously lost my number in the reshuffling of coaching staff,” Steyn tweeted.
He also apologized to Indian skipper Virat Kohli after the snub and tweeted, “Apologies to Virat and a billion people for thinking they not”.
Interesting 'footnote' at the end of CSA's squad announcement for T20Is and Tests vs India… "Chris Morris did not make himself available for selection."
