We can find a bowler who can bowl like steyn but can we find aggressiveness,ready to bowl like atitude in one man

Test cricket yes he has a choice and it's all about "money " IPL or test cricket rest during that time of IPL this is the start of cricketers playing all forms it's taxing on the body but " money \U0001f4b0 "

All these times Steyn have pushed himself for a quick recovery cos there was no other fast bowler who came to the party,now lets give him time to recover and he will be back stronger,also he is getting older and must think of retirement but i see him as the perfect partner who can spearheaded Kg career,i still rememba shaun pollock before retirement he didnt take alot of wickets but he put pressure on the batsmen,Steyn will do that when he comes back.

Don't understand why people say he should retire,still bowls at good pace still swing the balls and he can certainly reverse the old one.Even if it takes him the whole year then let him,he's still our best bowler after all

Nice post. I think proteas are gud at looking beyond or moving on.So Rabada who is fresh and ripe should spearhead the attack.

RABADA IS THE REPLACEMENT. As for chris Morris he must stay far away from the test squad.HE BOWLS FAST WITH NO CONTROL WHATSOEVER. FOREVER LEGS IDE HALF VOLLEYS. ....MERCHANT DE LARGE .ABBOTT PHILANDER N A 17 YEAR OLD SOMEWHERE WRITING GRADE 12 EXAMS

We have the depth now in our team... Styne no longer under pressure to recover quickly. Like AB take ur time Styne we got this in control SA 6-0 Ausis

He will be back but lets not forget that he has done more than enough to make South Africa a great cricket playing nation in our generation # Stayn remover

Athi,he could come back when fully recovered,the is space 4him and fit,but what is happening now with his call backs is irritating.

We all love Steyn but we all must be realistic, the past 2 years almost Steyn has not plaid s full series and that in it self is a problem because he is keeping someone else out of the team there is more than enough talent and in the 12 years we have been playing he has not been part of a worldcup winning team. Lets get the new guys in and lets prepare them for champions league next year and world cup coming Steyn is a phenomenal bowler but I believe its time to pass the baton. Keep him on as a consultant I am sure he will be of more value as a bowling coach than Charl Langervelt

Steyn will come back stronger this one injury is not the end off his career he still has a few more years left in him its a pleasure too watch him bowl hoping he comes back and get too #500 test wickets #SteynRemover

I hear everyone says tht there r lot of gud bowlers tht can replace Steyn, yes its true but we will always need someone wth his temper, agrassiveness, anger and everything tht he displayed on th field to put betsmen underpressure. we all knw tht Steyn also played a huge role(verbaly) to put anykind of betman underpressure in th cris.. whos gonna starts th fights now? :) Dale you are everything to me as ur fan.

Fully agree when u need to get back in to a test match steyn was the man

Daphne Heald

Yes, too many injuries. Can't pick a bowler who doesn't play his part in a test. Puts pressure on the selection of the team

Lets just hope Dale ends his Test career on his terms (only he will know when his time is up) and doesnt push himself again when he is not 100% fit.

Rabada, De Lange and Morris the new Steyn, Morne, Vern.

Leon Botha

The new Vern ....really?? Whats wrong with Vern De Lange is not test status in any case Morris i agree or Abbot

Lol Vern is not young, Abbott is a bit boring for me. De Lange has pace and x-factor.

Rabada Replaced Steyn and Morkel Long Time Ago,,,He is Only Selected on Reputation,,,,So As Faf, Already Replace AB as Captain

He is 10 times better than steyn when steyn was 21 he got replaced cos Phil jaques wa butchering him...don't catch feel though ...#i sit n wait for an insult cos he who can't win an argument resort to insult

Dont speak nonsense my man. He still has a long way to go. Is doing well but not in steyns class yet.

Walter George

Hey my man when he has performed the way Steyn has and for as long as he has then we can talk. For now he's on the crest of a wave. Good luck to him I hope it lasts. Vernon philander also burst onto the scene with outstanding performances but has now slowed down so lets wait and see where he is after 84 tests

Our best pace attack now would be Philander rabada Morkel / Abbot and Morris / Pretorius as the allrounders. I think to make a permanent call on maharaj after one test is a bit presumptious. I also think that Hardus Viljoen and mershant DE lange should each be given another look. The mystery of shamsi is also a question that needs an answer.

I remember him being a key memeber of the short format just before the wc in aus

Such a pity. Been a great player, one of SAs best bowlers of all time. But I think it's time to say thank you and goodbye. Rabada, Abbot, Morris, Morkel, Vernon, even Parnell are all there and capable.

Check his numbers vs Akram,Younis, McGrath, Pollock, Donald, Walsh, Ambrose, Thompson, Garner etc and fix your statement to best of all time.....not just RSA.

Nick Leo

I didn't think say "just" RSA, I said one of the best bowlers we have had of all time. Yes he is one of the best in the world. But his career and hard work is taking its toll on him now.

This is South Africa guys. We survived through Shaun Pollock, Jacques Kallis, Makhaya Ntini and Charl Langeveldt. There will be more fast bowlers coming through

Christopher Zoony De Croes

Maybe just one test to go past pollocks record but just going to be a liability ,fast bowling at his age takes too much.
