Playing in his 69th Test match, Steyn is the fastest South African to do so, as he beat Shaun Pollock‘s record (86 matches) by a margin of 17 games. After having a relatively low-key first Test, Steyn got back to business in the second Test. He had bagged six wickets in the first innings, and three in second innings to take his match tally to nine. He ruffled the Indian batting early on, and then proved too fast for the tail.
Steyn has, from time to time, reasserted why he is regarded as the best paceman in the world, in this generation. His Test records boasts of 350 wickets from just 69 matches at an average of 23.07, and a strike rate of 42.2. He has 21 five-wicket hauls to his name, along with five ten-wicket hauls.
