South Africa's Dale Steyn

South Africa paceman Dale Steyn has been ruled out of the remainder of the Cricket World Cup due to a shoulder injury.

The luckless Steyn was a doubt for the tournament in England and Wales after suffering a recurrence of an issue with his right shoulder.

Steyn played no part in the World Cup defeats to England and Bangladesh, but the Proteas were hoping the 35-year-old would be fit to help them recover from a poor start to the tournament.

Cricket South Africa (CSA) on Tuesday revealed Steyn will play no part in the competition after sustaining a second shoulder issue, which has not responded to treatment.

Left-arm Beuran Hendricks, who has made only two ODI appearances, will replace Steyn in the squad ahead of Wednesday's clash with India at the Rose Bowl, subject to approval.
