Hmm, I dunno. Have to remember Steyn's big disadvantage in the statistical aggregate races - SA simply don't play enough Tests.

Steyn 323 wickets @ 22.67 strike rate of 41
Mcgrath bowled 29 248 balls if Steyn ever bowled that many balls at his current rate he'll take 713 wickets
Improbable and unlikely though haha
One thing working in Steyn's favour is how much better he is than his contemporaries. The next best is Anderson while Mc Grath had to contend with Ambrose, Walsh, Akram as his contemporaries.
Get well soon Yuvi!!
Another thing that I feel tends to get ignored in this sort of situation is that playing fewer games can benefit a player as they avoid injuries, get proper rest time and can go at full pelt more often during games as they know they don't have as big a workload.

Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

south aferica play india next
Yeah South Africa's test schedule is extremely barren this year.
And that tour by India is not going to be pretty. Our batting looks ****e honestly, almost as ****e as NZ, Pak. I cant really see anyone doing well there. Its all on Kohli and Pujara really but Pujara looked all at sea against Steyn when we toured a couple of years ago and i just feel now that Kohli's amazing purple patch is done, he'll struggle.
Plus, the stas-whore in me hopes Sachin retires before that tour to preserve his pristine 40+ average in every country vs every country
RSA is visiting us for a Test series in UAE this summer.
How would people rate the bowling between the two teams. For me it would be:
Junaid (potential to get a lot better though)
I am going to ignore the rookie Rahat since it was his debut.
Oh yes south africa go to UAE to play Pakistan before we host India, still enough cricket to come this year
