AB de Villiers has returned after a two-year hiatus from the Test arena while Steyn is available again after a year-long lay-off and major shoulder surgery for the three match series against the top-ranked Test team. But Steyn, five wickets shy of becoming South Africa's top Test wicket taker, will only play if South Africa decide to go with an extra bowler on what is expected to be a green, seamer-friendly wicket at Newlands. "We don't know just yet whether we will play him in the first Test but, depending on the selection, he might well play," Gibson said. "I'm not saying that will happen, but you don't want to take that risk with the first Test. We will be playing the best team in the world, so we have to bring our A-game," he said.
