    Dale Steyn retires from Test cricket

    In a way I am kind of sad, hoping he had one more go at Newlands

    What a champion bowler, although all those injuries at the end



    Dale Steyn brought down the curtain on one of the great fast bowling Test careers of the modern era when he announced his retirement from red-ball cricket with immediate effect.

    When was his last Test? Real shame he couldn’t get a proper send-off.

    Favourite non Indian cricketer ever. Quite close to being favourite full stop.

    There was nothing else which gave me the same feeling as watching one of those crazy eye spells where you could see he was about to **** the opposition up. Greatest quick since McGrath by a distance.

    The home series against SL. Those two series against Pak and SL kind of made it obvious the end was near. He was actually bowling decently, and had stretches where he'd look like SA's best bowler by a mile, but also became weirdly hittable.

    SL vs SA this last Feb. Which is a sad way to end such a magnificent career.

    Steyn was ahead of the other test bowlers in his era by the same margin that Viv was ahead of other ODI batsmen of his era.
