Profile

Scary eyes, throbbing veins and a chainsaw celebration have all made Dale Steyn South Africa's most feared fast bowler. Extreme pace, the ability to swing the ball both ways, and accuracy have perhaps made him the country's best ever. At the peak of his powers, Steyn possessed a lithe and wiry body, a steaming run-up that culminated in a aerodynamic action, and a ripper of an outswinger.

Timeline
    • December 17-21, 2004
      A moderate beginning
      • With only seven first-class matches under his belt, he is handed a Test debut after impressing South African coach Ray Jennings with his pace. It's a torrid Test baptism - he finishes with 3 for 146 in a seven-wicket defeat.
    • April-May, 2006
      A spirited second coming
      • Starts drawing comparisons with Allan Donald after a breakthrough home series against New Zealand. He collects 16 wickets at 26.00 in three Tests forming a potent new-ball combination with Makhaya Ntini.
    • October 3, 2006
      The accolades start
      • His promising return to Test cricket after the stumbling start in 2004 makes him one of South Africa's Five Cricketers of the Year, the first time he's chosen for the honour.
