Bio

In a team packed with fast-bowling talent, Dale Steyn is the cream of the crop.

Known for his fiery-on field persona, Steyn is able to produce the rare combination of controlled swing and extreme speed, which saw him take over from the likes of Allan Donald, Shaun Pollack and Makhaya Ntini.

His career has not been entirely smooth sailing – in his debut Test series in 2004, Steyn managed just eight wickets at 52 in six games against England and was dropped.

But the quick soon returned with a vengeance and has wreaked havoc since. His one-day international debut came in 2005, and by 2014 had more than 100 wickets to his name.

Fans will remember his inspiring performance against India in the 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup, where he stole the show with a match-winning 5-55 against India.

Steyn is one of the world's greatest quicks, taking more that 400 Test wickets at the sublime average of 22.8.
