Dale Steyn is by far the best pace bowler of his generation, a supreme combination of pace, skill and uncanny fitness. And it is inevitable that he will end his career ranked among the greatest fast bowlers of all time.

Perhaps the scorching heat of Valley of Olifants where he was born forged Steyn into the super-athlete that he is. To conserve energy while generating extreme pace in furnace-like conditions, he probably bartered his expressions. He picks up a wicket every seven overs in Tests, is uniformly lethal around the world, his brooding menace remains unaltered even as he changes into the coloured attire of shorter formats. All the while, his visage betrays barely a flicker of emotion.

At frantic speed he swings the ball in both directions — in traditional and reverse ways. He skids on, darts in, and veers away from right-handers at alarming angles. One ball thudded into the face of Craig Cummins resulting in 23 fractures to the Kiwi batsman. His average is streets ahead of others in this bat-dominated era, and his strike rate remains among the top five across space and time. His new-ball combination with Vernon Philander has rarely been matched. And all this is achieved with wicked, poison-tipped deliveries sent down at the end of an excellent economic action.  


The mind boggles when one considers the peaks he may scale if blessed with a few more uninterrupted, injury-free years as the gold-tipped spearhead of South Africa.
