South African pacer Dale Steyn will make up for the absence of fellow countryman Hashim Amla who won’t be returning for his County stint with Hampshire due to the knee injury.
“I can’t say enough positive things about Hashim. He made a brilliant impression and he’s been outstanding throughout that time spent with us, both through his engagement with the Club and our young players, as well as the experience and skill he offered with the bat,” Giles White, Hampshire’s Director of Cricket said.
“It’s easy to see why he’s so well regarded around the world and one of the greats of our era. We wish him well against Sri Lanka and hopefully one day we’ll see him back in Hampshire colours,” white added,
