Contracted by Cricket South Africa until the end of the World Cup, Gibson's future in South Africa is uncertain and he was given a clear mandate to win the tournament when he was put in charge back in 2017. Steyn, 35, had aggravated a long-standing right shoulder injury during his short stint in the Indian Premier League.

They will be without Dale Steyn on Thursday as the outstanding fast bowler nurses a shoulder injury but South Africa have become used to his absence in recent times.

Ottis Gibson, the head coach of the South African team, said he hopes that the pacer would be available for selection for the match against Bangladesh. England skipper Eoin Morgan said in post match presentation that, "Delighted with that performance, the maturity and smart cricket that we played shows our improvement in the last two years". Further, he also added, "he is getting closer every day". His talent and the likes of Lungi Ngidi, Andile Phehlukwayo, Chris Morris and Dwaine Pretorius gives du Plessis reason to stay upbeat. We cannot take any decision in haste, so he is being given time to get fit.

What to Watch For - The Memorial Tournament
He is second on tour in birdies per round, sixth in strokes gained off the tee and seventh in strokes gained tee to green. Other golfers to like are Patrick Cantlay at 18/1, Rickie Fowler at 18/1, and the five-time victor Tiger Woods at 12/1.

Almora fouled a ball down the third base line and was immediately distraught, putting his arms on his helmet. The Houston Astros confirmed the child was taken to a hospital, but declined to provide further information.

"We will hopefully stick to what we've been doing the past four years and hopefully the World Cup will work out well for us". "Now it's just a real reshuffle and looking to Plan B and C", Du Plessis said. You do treat these events as more important or bigger games than you normally do and in that lies a recipe that we shouldn't follow.

Steyn will play no part when the curtain is raised on the global jamboree tomorrow morning, with a return only being penciled in for the India clash next Wednesday. This will result in him not playing in the first match of the team. England outplayed South Africa in all the departments in the first match of the CWC 2019. Team coach Otis Gibson has made it clear that the team will not get Steyn's services in the first match.
