South African fast bowler, Dale Steyn has often been seen praising the current crop of fast bowlers in India. Team India has historically never had a group of quality pacers but in recent times have emerged as a force to reckon with. Steyn has advised the current Test pace quartet of Jasprit Bumrah, Ishant Sharma, Mohammad Shami, and Mohammed Siraj to stay fit ahead of the five-match Test series against England.

The Indian fans are eagerly waiting for the series in England because many believe this is a good chance for India to win this series in the UK. Dale Steyn believes that if India’s pace bowling unit India has to succeed in the swing-friendly English conditions, they need to pay attention to fitness.

As per the quotes in ESPNCricinfo, Dale Steyn said,  “I like what they have got right now. All those bowlers bring something different to the party. My advice is to stay fit. Five Test matches – that requires a lot of bowling. It’s a lot of wickets to take, and if you’re going to rely on your seamers to do a lot of bowling, you have to stay fit.”

Dale Steyn was further seen praising India’s latest fast-bowling sensation, Mohammed Siraj. The South African pacer expressed that Siraj has a wonderful attitude in the game, a quality that never gets enough talked about in international cricket.  

Steyn explained, “I think he brings a good attitude to the game. That’s another thing we tend to forget when you’re playing in England conditions. It’s not just about where you put the ball but also the attitude you bring, getting in people’s faces, making them play shots they don’t particularly want to play – I think Siraj is somebody who can do that.”

Daley Steyn also suggested that would have enjoyed his services in the ICC WTC Final, but noted that that move could’ve costed some more runs down the order for India. Steyn further said that he knew as soon as he saw him in Australia that he was going to have a great career.
