South Africa pacer Dale Steyn is all set to make a comeback to cricket from a long injury-layoff since November last year. Steyn has been named in the 'quality' Titans squad this week in the Ram Slam T20 Challenge. 

The 34-year old has been out of action since the Australia tour after an injury in the shoulder kept him out for a nearly a year. Steyn will bring an end to his time with the Cape Cobras and rejoin the Titans.

Steyn posted a picture on Twitter holding the Titan's jersey to confirm his return to cricket. Steyn posted" Quality set up, Professional. Refreshing to be back at the Titans. Definitely leading the way in the domestic circuit".

The South African seamer, who did not feature in the Titans' opening T20 game of the season against Highveld Lions on Sunday, will be closely monitored by national coach Ottis Gibson in the T20 Challenge.

The pacer just needs five more wickets to become South Africa's all-time leading Test wicket-taker.

Steyn has so far collected 417 Test wickets, just behind former South Africa all-rounder Shaun Pollock who bid adieu to his career with 421 wickets.
