Dale Steyn became the ninth bowler to record 50 T20 International wickets during the ICC World T20 2014 clash between South Africa and New Zealand at Chittagong. Steyn’s remarkable spell of four for 17 helped South Africa snatch victory in a tense finish.
Steyn picked up the wickets of Kane Williamson, Corey Anderson, Luke Ronchi and Nathan McCullum. At the start of the game, he was on 48 wickets, with Graeme Swann and McCullum just ahead of him. He reached the mark when he had Anderson out holing to the deep.
Steyn’s effort did not win him the Man of the Match award though as it was taken by JP Duminy for his innings of 86 not out.
