It is not often that a fast bowler is rated as the best so early in his career. I do think however he will go down as a great once he is finished.
Considering Brett Lee was rated as world's best fast bowler last year. He would have to go down as the worst.
Also if you look back through at the late 60s after Trueman retired, was there really a standout fast bowler. McKenzie was probably the best quick around that time and he was worse the Steyn.
EDIT: Looking back maybe Peter Pollock was No 1 around that time. But still he is on par with Steyn for mine.
