South Africa bowler Dale Steyn will miss the second Test against England in Cape Town.

Captain Hashim Amla has confirmed the 32-year-old is still nursing a shoulder injury and will be replaced by Kagiso Rabada.

The Proteas were soundly beaten in the first Test in Durban on Wednesday and have already had to call up paceman Hardus Viljoen as cover for Kyle Abbott, who is struggling with a hamstring injury.

“Dale will miss the next Test, and Kyle is pending a fitness test to see if he’s good to go,” Amla said.

Without Dale, Kagiso Rabada will come in. If Kyle is not fit we have to make a decision between Hardus Viljoen and Chris Morris, those are our two options.”
