Steyn recently became the highest wicket-taker for South Africa in T20Is. Steyn achieved the milestone in the first game of the three-match T20I series against England. He now has 62 wickets in 45 games for the Proteas. He surpassed Imran Tahir, who had 61 wickets in 35 games for the Proteas.
Steyn has already said that he wishes to participate in this year’s T20 World Cup as he feels his vast experience of 15 years in international cricket will prove crucial to lead the Proteas quicks in Australia.
