Dale Steyn

Dale Steyn made his debut for South Africa against England in 2004 alongwith Ab De Villiers. Steyn's debut was not an eventful one and he had to wait for nearly a year to get another opportunity. Steyn took 16 wickets that series against New Zealand, but it was only when he faced them the next year, in the 2007-08 summer, that he announced himself as one of the fierce fast men. It was then that he sent Craig Cumming to intensive care when one of his short balls crashed on the Kiwi's face. The wickets started flowing and in 2008, he became the fastest South African at the time, and the 15th fastest overall, to reach 100 Test wickets. That September, Steyn was named ICC Test Player of the Year after taking 86 wickets in 14 matches at an average of 18.10. He was part of the South African side that beat England and Australia for the first time away from home since readmission, and then proved he could do it on the subcontinent. He went on to rake up 300 Test wickets, only the fourth South African to reach the milestone. But South Africa's failure in the 2015 World Cup proved to be something that Steyn couldn't recover from. He returned in December to play against England but a shoulder injury cut short that summer. In the 2015-16 season, Steyn missed six of South Africa's eight Tests and all their ODIs. He recovered for the World T20 but only played two of the four matches.
