Cape Town, Jan 6 : South African veteran pacer Dale Steyn may not take further part in the ongoing first Test against India due to a left heel injury which might force him to miss the next two matches of the series.

Steyn landed awkwardly during his run-up in India's first innings in the post-lunch session. According to espncricinfo, he may not bowl again in this Test.
