South Africa's players backed up their captain AB de Villiers' denial that they were the underdogs going into the three-match ODI series against India in the most emphatic fashion possible by dominating the tourists en route to a 141-run defeat at the Wanderers.
South Africa have chosen to rest Dale Steyn in today's ICC Champions Trophy 2013 opener against India and are confident he will be fit in time for their second game, against Pakistan on 10th June.
Steyn left the field after bowling just five overs during his side's warm-up defeat to Pakistan, a match which also saw Robin Peterson struck on the foot while batting.
South Africa fast bowler Dale Steyn says that his side's time spent in the Netherlands ahead of the ICC Champions Trophy will give his side an 'extra edge'.
They take on the Netherlands in a One-Day International on Friday (31st May) ahead of which they are training at a pre-tour camp in Amsterdam.
