Image Source from a long time, he was injured and he came and gone many time during the match so in short, we can say he didn't play consistent series from 2-3 years which was one tough period for South Africa because he was the main bowler, in fact, most dangerous and world no.1 bowler. ones he was injured during a tour of Australia then he not able to play many matches which also brought down his performance. ones period came that he not getting many wickets and sometimes wicketless as well as expansive too which is not an image of Dale Steyn which love to see but then long time he didn't appear as he was dropped from the team and also in IPL too so he did try hard to come back in his form. but this time. he looks so confident, fit and in rhythm then last many years because he can play the whole match as well as bowling his spell very well with speed and the most important thing is that he is accurate with his line and length thus he is very economical which is a good thing for him. recently he played full ODI series against Australia where he did great bowling as well as able to take early wickets which helps his team to victory so its a good sign that we get to see again our old Steyn. Image Source Yesterday also we get some good bowling from him as he tries to a batsman to drive a bowl and thus for it, he kept 3-4 sleep with gully which is a good plan. he kept moving bowl outside and one ball keeps inside which brought him a wicket which was he looking from many years. Dale Steyn wants to play for World Cup and also wants his team lift the trophy before he retired from International Cricket and thus for it, he is doing hard work with his bowling and fitness so let see how he perform ahead. we have not seen 5 wickets hall of Dale Steyn from a long time also so we can wish that it also get to see soon as he is back in his rhythm. when he was performing well at that time always in topic with James Anderson that who will take more wickets and also most of people choice for break Glenn McGrath record which was currently broke by James Anderson but due to Injury he is now way behind of it and do not think he can play more than 1 years but he is always finest fast bowler of all time from whom people afraid at one time and thus he gets name ''Steyn Gun.''
