CAPE TOWN, May 16 -- South Africa's premier pace duo of Dale Steyn and Kagiso Rabada could be fit to play in their high-voltage World Cup opener against hosts England, according to coach Ottis Gibson. Perennial underachievers South Africa face with tournament favourites England on May 30, and the Proteas are expecting their two best pacers to return to full fitness before the opening game. Both Steyn and Rabada's IPL campaigns wre cut short by injuries, but the latter had picked 25 wickets by then for Delhi Capitals. "There was an issue with KG (Rabada) and there was an issue with Dale, but we feel that those guys are on track," Gibson told reporters on Tuesday.
