The Standard Bank Protea fast bowler may make his much-anticipated return to competitive cricket after a year-long absence, and the 34 year-old says he can't wait to play for the boys in blue.
"I am ready to go," said Steyn. "Yes, I haven't played in a year, but there are no massive expectations. I am just looking forward to playing again and feeling part of the game."
"I'm not asking people to sit back and think I'm going to bowl at 150 km/ph and that I'm going to take five wickets. If I can get through the game with minimal damage in terms of economy rate and pick up a wicket or two that would be great."
Phalaborwa-born Steyn began his career at the Titans, where he made his debut in 2003 before moving to the WSB Cape Cobras for seven years. Since his inception into domestic T20 cricket world-wide, he has accumulated 201 wickets in 179 matches at an average of 22 and an economy rate below seven.
Steyn returned to Centurion on Sunday, where he watched on as his side opened their 2017/18 T20 campaign with a convincing eight-wicket win against the bizhub Highveld Lions, at SuperSport Park.
The right-armer was mightily impressed with Albie Morkel's all-round performance, by which the Titans' skipper finished with match-winning figures of 3-12 and an unbeaten 41.
Wednesday's fixture will mark Morkel's 300th appearance in the shortest format across global T20 competitions, where he is closing in on 4000 runs thanks largely to a strike-rate in excess of 138. He has also taken 243 wickets at an average of 25.47.
"It was a quality performance. When you've got all those Proteas like AB and Quinny in the side it does pack a punch for the opposition bowlers. And then Albie came in and what he did was pretty special," said Steyn.
"I'm going to slot in where I'm needed. We need to play within our strengths. Albie's strength is definitely to take the new ball and get two overs out of the way. For me, I want to get overs under the belt."
"If I look back at the way I've played over my career I generally bowl two up front and one in the middle and one at the death - that's probably how I'm best utilised."
The visitors will come up against a Knights side boasting international quality, with David Miller and Theunis de Bruyn in the batting line-up. Together the pair shared a 142-run partnership to steer the Knights to an eight-wicket victory against the Warriors on Friday night.
The last time the two sides met at the Diamond Oval, the team from the North clinched a narrow 10-run victory and Steyn believes that executing bowling skills will be key on a pitch that should favour the batsmen.
"There's momentum with both teams," said Steyn.
"Dave's a great batter - he's not the kind of guy that comes out of the block and goes from ball one. Even when he scored the 100 against Bangladesh he offered up a few early chances - and he'll tell you that himself.
"You need to put him under pressure in his first 10 to15 balls, and if he gets through that period you have to be good with your plans and execution because he can hit you wherever he wants to," he said.
"It's a small ground with a generally flat wicket and a very fast outfield, so it should be a another high-scoring match. You still need to be attacking and the best way to slow down the run-rate is by taking wickets."
"If I was playing against the Titans I would be worried looking at our batting line-up and the nature of our bowling line-up. We've got guys like Tabraiz, who can really out spin you and then quicks that can blow you away."
