Forty-one months since picking up his 400th Test wicket, Dale Steyn went past Shaun Pollock's tally of 421 to become South Africa's most successful bowler in long-form cricket. Leading the tributes was Pollock himself, who was on air when Steyn reached the milestone.
Well done @DaleSteyn62 Well deserved. The work you put in behind closed doors pays off. This is a perfect example.Hopefully many more wickets still lie ahead— Jacques Kallis (@jacqueskallis75) December 26, 2018
...except Vaughan was Steyn's third Test wicket. That small detail apart, who can forget that ball?
Congratulations @DaleSteyn62 Great to watch ... Probably the best going around.— Russel Arnold (@RusselArnold69) December 26, 2018
