    Dale Steyn has massive fan following in sub continent than any other bowler in the world cricket. Don't ever call him undervalued Nas!

    Two favourite fast bowlers to watch for sure. Steyn was relentless, impossible to stop once in his stride and injected real venom in every delivery. Jimmy would pop up with utterly playable outswingers at the vital moment to turn a test and series in England's favour. When Hafeez and Tendulkar are your respective bunnies at home and overseas, you know you know you've got a couple of bowlers.

    Steyn didn't have much skills like he said ,he has a terrific pace and great accuracy,but can't bowl different variations and explore like Jimmy and steyn had a great support from morne.morkel , philander and can go for wickets without worrying about going for runs, Jimmy is England's leader in bowling and has limited support apart from broad , so he need to contain the batsman and has more responsibility. Both are legends

    Sorry but Jimmy is NO MATCH with Dale! Jimmy can be compared with condition bowlers such as Broad &co. Dale Steyn is in the class of Marshal and Akram. Dale is being too nice, he is one of the bests of all times while you can find bowlers like Jimmy in every other English county teams. Dale was unlucky with those career limiting injuries else.......he would be sitting with 700+

    Dale Steyn without injury problems would have been the greatest bowler the world has seen, and he is still so humble. Anderson is an absolutely lethal test bowler, especially in English (and swinging conditions). Dale was brilliant, irrespective of conditions or format.

    Steyn doing himself disservice in this interview. He's comfortably a better bowler than Anderson. A pigeon could swing the duke ball in overcast English conditions. Anderson has never been a threat abroad.

    dale is one of the greatest of all time. anderson is okay. anderson's ball swings because of england stadium design, conditions, pitches that protect the seam, and prominent seam and endurance duke ball.

    Dale Steyn with his average, strike rate, and performances all over the world especially in the sub-continent and Australia, is surely one the best fast bowlers the world has ever seen. He's already better than akram, mcgrath, waqar, anderson, marshal and co

    How condescending of Nasser Hussain at 28:12 to suggest that Dale Steyn is sometimes "forgotten"? And on top of that he mentions that it was Nasser himself who forgot Steyn! And why would Steyn get upset when a certain David Saker says Anderson is the better bowler? Dale Steyn has single handedly won matches for South Africa in India, England, Australia - what has Jimmy Anderson done outside England?

    Love this. These two were absolutely righteous in their time, but it strikes me that great fast bowlers are like the Sith: always two there are. They operate in pairs. Think Lillee and Thompson, Curtly and Courtney, Wasim and Waqar, Donald and Pollock, and you get the idea. The partner in crime at the other end deserves much credit. In their cases, it was Anderson and (usually) Broad, and Steyn and (usually) Morkel.

    Steyn was no 1 bowler in the world for 6 and half years. I got goosebumps. I remember how dale dominated 2011-2013 playing for Hyderabad in IPL(those OUTSWINGERS!!!!). No way Jimmy can do that outside the Wimbledon ;)

  • JBWilmore

    Dale Steyn: Jimmy was a more skilful bowler. Random person on the internet: No he wasn't. I know who I believe...

    • nealrutgerskid

      Actually. The random is correct. Dale is just being humble. The stats says it all. Jimmy is a test specialist and Dale is an all rounder. Jimmy is untouchable in english conditions and Dale is better in all conditions.

    Steyn is lying. He can not say he do not any skills. It’s insult to his skills, passion and devotees. Just watch videos of Steyngun bowling at his best. Just bad luck coated in injury struck him to pull him down but Dale was a Ridiculous Terror. Only could be compared with Steyn are Malcom or Curtly. Ask Rahul Dravid about Steyn. Jimmy is great and his action is his strength. But he was never a terror. He is more like Artist rather than an assassin. If you know Art of playing swing bowling then you have chance here. South Africa lost so many great players in last 5-6 years. Very Bad. Steyngun, Amla & The Lord of Thunder - Sir ABD retired in short GAP to keep their team in bad shape. Pom’s here have worked well on their bench strength. But they could not replace Jimmy. Jimmy and Kapil can not be made but they arrive at their time.

    Naseer to steyn :- do you think you are undervalued in between other South African greats? Me:- Naseer lost his mind ask us? Being 90's kid, being Indian how much we are both fond and feared of steyn? Actually we feared most in great S.A team either S.A. tours India or India tours S.A. is due to this man Steyn🙏. Not any fast bowler dictated in India as Steyn had done. Great Respect for Legendary Dale Steyn🙏

  • Anshuman Sinha
    Anshuman Sinha

    Both Jimmy and Dale are insanely good bowlers and the best in the world for a substantial time during their careers. The only difference is that Jimmy was on a slow burn and his rise happened much later in his career whereas most bowlers of his caliber establish themselves within the first year or two of their careers. Jimmy didn't have that hype early in his career but he kept getting better and better with time. Steyn was instantly one of the best in the world. If one had to make a World XI of the decade 2010-2020, then they'll both be in there in the side.
