- Dale Steyn announces retirement from cricket
- Steyn took 699 wickets from all formats
- He took 5 wickets against all Test nations
Stein announced his retirement in a Twitter post. Stein made his South African debut on December 17, 2004 and played for the country for seventeen long years. He played in 93 Tests, 125 ODIs and 47 Twenty20 Internationals. He took 699 wickets from all formats. No international competition has been played since February 21, 2020.
Steyn was named the world’s longest-serving bowler at number one. For 263 consecutive weeks from 2008 to 2014, Steyn was ranked number one in the Test rankings. He also took 493 wickets in Tests. Steyn took 196 wickets in ODIs and 64 in T20s. He announced his retirement at the age of 38. He retired from Test cricket in 2019.
Stein noted that retirement is very painful. Announcing his retirement from the game he loved so much. I have so many faces and memories to thank for 20 long years. Thanks to family, colleagues and the media. The trip together was so beautiful. Life has been about training, travel, success and failure for over 20 years. Schotten ends the post by expressing his love to the fans as well.
The player was forced to retire from cricket sooner than expected due to a series of injuries. Steyn still holds the record for the fastest four hundred wickets in a Test. He is the highest wicket-taker in Tests for South Africa.
Stein is distinguished by his ability to move the ball in both directions and his ability to bowl consistently above 150 kilometers per hour. Steyn also has the distinction of being the only bowler to take 5 wickets against all Test nations. Schotten would play in last year’s T20 World Cup. However, with the postponement of the tournament, the opportunity was lost.
