Johannesburg: Fast bowler Dale Steyn has become the second South African bowler after Shaun Pollock to get 400 Test wickets after dismissing Bangladesh opener Tamim Iqbal on the opening day of the second Test in Dhaka on Wednesday.

Steyn, who is playing his 80th Test, reached his landmark when skipper Hashim Amla took a chest-high catch in his third over of the match, reports Sport24

Steyn’s former bowling Coach Allan Donald wished for the 32-year old to get 500 wickets soon, saying that is what the former always wanted to do.

Steyn has become the 13th cricketer to take 400 or more wickets in Test matches.(ANI)
