I don’t set targets, says new 400-club entrant Steyn

Johannesburg: South African pacer Dale Steyn, who has entered the coveted 400 wicket club, has said that he is not much into setting targets for himself to achieve, and just would have been happy to have even taken one international wicket.

Sport24 quoted Steyn as affirming that he was just happy to represent South Africa in a sport that he loved and was passionate about.

Bangladesh opener Tamim Iqbal became Steyn’s 400th victim after skipper Hashim Amla took a chest-high catch in his third over of the second Test match.

It took him 80 Tests to reach the 400 Test wicket club. He is the joint second quickest bowler to reach 400 wickets, along with former New Zealand fast bowler Sir Richard Hadlee.

Steyn is the second South African bowler after Shaun Pollock to be in the 400-wicket club. Pollock claimed 421 scalps before retiring from international cricket in 2008. (ANI)
