The imminent acquisition of the South African record for most Test wickets is no more than Steyn deserves given that he is one of the greatest fast bowlers in the history of the game.
The Pride of Phalaborwa came to the Titans Academy having played for the then Northern Province Schools side in 2000 and 2001.
The signs of greatness were quickly spotted, in particular his priceless ability to swing the ball late at high pace, and his hunger to keep learning and adding to his skills. The way he has conquered sub-continent conditions with reverse-swing are testament to this.
The demands of fast bowling – and Steyn certainly gives it his all – have obviously led to injuries along the way, but having become the fastest to 400 wickets in Test history, Steyn is now adding the finishing touches to a career that has already guaranteed him legend status.
An enthusiastic wielder of the bat, Steyn is a lover of the outdoors, surfing and extreme sports featuring strongly on his list of extramural pursuits.
After four seasons playing for the WSB Cape Cobras, Steyn returned to his beloved Multiply Titans before last season and however many games this superstar has left in his lithe body, just his sheer presence at the franchise will obviously be inspirational.
