Melbourne: There won't be any respite for the Indian batsmen as South Africa's numero uno fast bowler Dale Steyn looked fit and set to go out all guns blazing at Virat Kohli and Co, when the two teams meet in the cricket World Cup group league match here on Sunday.

As Steyn went through his routine, left-hander David Miller was seen trying out innovative ways to improve his batting.

Steyn, who was suffering from sinus-related problems, today went full blast at the nets, as he bowled for more than half-hour with Hashim Amla, Quinton de Kock and David Miller facing him with lot of caution.

Steyn dished out everything during his session. There were fuller deliveries, slower ones and the occasional bouncers which tested the Proteas batsman.

In fact, De Kock was hit just above the abdomen region as he missed a short delivery that didn't kick up but had enough pace to hurt him. The left-hander did look in some sort of pain. While Steyn enquired about the well-being of his mate, he was soon back in business bowling his stuff and troubling his teammates.

In one of the nets at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), the hard-hitting Miller was seen using a stump for bat to take throw downs.

It was an amazing sight as Miller was seen middling most of the throw downs with a narrow stump. The purpose of this drill was to concentrate on middling the ball. The narrower the bat width, the more precision one needs to hit and that too, off the middle of the bat.
