Big blow for South Africa as Dale Steyn ruled out of Champions Trophy 2013 SEMI FINALS after failing fitness test this morning.
South Africa are going to play their 5th semi-final in Champions Trophy history, the most by any team. Previously won 1 (won by 92-run v SL in 1998) & Lost 3 (lost to India in 2000, lost to India 2002, lost to WI 2006).
The Oval has tended to be a touch quicker than the other two venues, though after ten days of cricket a wearing pitch should encourage spin. Some overnight rain is expected to clear in time for the start
1.This will be South Africa's first trip to London in this tournament. They have lost their last four ODIs at The Oval, including against West Indies during the 2004 Champions Trophy.
