“Know How To Take Wickets” – Dale Steyn Lauds Mohammed Shami And Jasprit Bumrah

Former South African pacer Dale Steyn showered praise on Indian pacers Mohammed Shami and Jasprit Bumrah following their superlative show in the 1st Test against South Africa in Centurion. Incidentally, India thrashed the home side by 113 runs to go 1-0 up in the three-match series.

Shami picked up eight wickets including a five-wicket haul while Jasprit Bumrah returned with five scalps as South Africa managed only 197 and 191 in both innings respectively. Praising India’s pace duo, Dale Steyn stated that they used the conditions well.

“Bumrah and Shami have been amazing for a while now, big keys for them, they bowl attacking lines & lengths (constantly) and move the ball very LATE. Day 1 vs Day 3/4/5 is a massive difference, the deck speeds up and things happen way faster. They were smart and used conditions well,” Dale Steyn said.

“More detailed response. Bumrah has a unique action that does make him tricky to face, a good pace too! Shami has a great wrist & always threatens the outside & inside edge with that wonderful seam. MOST importantly, they experienced & NOW know how to take wickets! Cant teach that,” he added.

Incidentally, Mohammed Shami and Jasprit Bumrah have largely been responsible for India’s overseas success in recent years. They have taken the most of the wickets and have been the go-to bowlers for captain Virat Kohli.

“They have been more and more impressive” – Dale Steyn on Team India

After Virat Kohli & Co registered their fourth win on South African soil, Dale Steyn congratulated the Indian team. Steyn also mentioned that he was really impressed with the way the Indian team has played on the last two tours to South Africa.

“Well done India. Over the last few tours to SA they’ve been more and more impressive. Winning away from home is what makes a world-class team, that’s what they currently doing. Congratulations,” Steyn said.
