    He's a phenomenal bowler, great skills and great to watch.
    That's not how you spell McGrath.

Would this be enough to put him as the all time great fast bowler?
    All very hypothetical i know lol.
    More than 20 tests and a few years, what Steyn needs is 20 years of retirement. People will then look back and think how he got such ridiculous figures all around the world at a time when bowling wasn't easy, all against lineups that had some seriously amazing batsmen like Sachin, Dravid, Ponting, Clarke, Chanders, Younis, Sanga, Jaya, Cook, Root, KW, Smith, Kohli, Pujara, Warner etc etc.

    Those batsmen themselves would have gone up in peoples estimation due to the passing of time which would in turn positively affect how people viewed Steyn.

    1.Marshall

    5.Lillee

    6-10 in no order -
    Imran
    Steyn
    Hadlee
    Holding
    Garner

    Steyn's big drawback is he copped it in big matches,particularly world cups.That last over in 2015 especially.

    Winning a test series in India happens less frequently than winning the World Cup, so I'd say that series matters more. Then there's the Ashes which is the most important series of all. South Africa is pretty important too since they can actually beat us as home.

    The other bilateral series aren't as important as the World Cup.

    Under bowling attack lead by Steyn, SA went for a decade without loosing an away series in an era where all other teams were pretty much hopeless outside of their den.

    IMPACT!

    Marshall's ODI record is pretty ordinary.

    Muralitharan might have something to say about that.
