The 38-year-old further added that the Indian team have got some bowling issues and they need to find a bowler who could provide support to the ace pace bowler Jasprit Bumrah. Steyn also said that the pacer Mohammed Siraj is a promising talent.

“India’s got a bit of a bowling issue. They need somebody to back up Bumrah. They need someone who can bowl in a 140-145km per hour bracket. Shami is great. He had a long Test series. Siraj looks like a name for the future. I think he’s got a bit of a niggle”, said Steyn during the post-match show.
