Dale Steyn will take the time to recover completely <br>Dale Steyn might be ruled out the ongoing Test series against Australia and out for the rest of the year at least, but the fast bowler is ready to take the time to heal properly. On the second day of the first Test in Perth, the Proteas pacer damaged his shoulder which he broke last season.<br> Speaking about the injury, Steyn said: "I felt this pop or like a thud in my shoulder. There was a lot of pain. I had to go off the field and have an MRI. I did something very similar against England in December in a similar area but it wasn't as bad. That was a stress reaction, which is like a very hairline little crack. This time it's more like a fracture. It's kind of broken the whole bone. I will probably have surgery and a plate in there. So we're probably looking at a minimum of six months before I'm up and going again."<br><br>On when he is likely to come back, he admitted that he won't make the mistake he made last time.<br><br><br><br>"The last time took about three months and I was up and running and ready to play. As the scheduling goes, there's a lot of cricket to be played and people want you to play. I didn't have the full time to recover. I have been dealing with this for quite some time and I was wanting to rush and get to the Twenty20 World Cup, I wanted to go to the IPL. I wanted to play. This time I have to take the time to let it heal properly,"<br> he added.
