‘Simply the best’ – the world reacts to Dale Steyn’s milestone

26 Dec, 2018 5:24 pm

Dale Steyn began South Africa’s Boxing Day Test against Pakistan needing just one wicket to become his country’s leading wicket-taker in the format.

As play begun, his bowling partner and close friend Morne Morkel already had the champagne on ice…

And it didn’t take long for the legendary fast bowler to strike, as Fakhar Zaman edged the first ball of Steyn’s fourth over behind to take him to the milestone.

Shaun Pollock, the man Steyn replaced atop the tree, had a heartfelt statement ready and waiting…

…And the ground DJ had clearly done some preparations too!

Of course, Steyn is no stranger to striking quickly. In fact, he might just be the best there’s ever been at it.

But fast bowling is just one of his many talents.

The tributes soon started pouring in, not just from South Africa but from around the world.

And it wasn’t long until people were wondering what the next record the paceman had in his sights was!
