Dale Steyn is out of cricketing action after sustaining an injury in his heel during the opening Test match against India in Cape Town. He will return to cricket after a rehabilitation of 4-6 weeks.

Out of action, South African speedster Steyn, who has arguably been one of the greatest bowlers in the recent times, was asked about his favorite fast bowlers among the current crop that he loves watching nowadays.

During a chat session, a fan asked this question, which he replied instantly.

In reply, Steyn said it was an easy choice. One of the most fabulous modern day fast bowlers felt that Morne Morkel, Kagiso Rabada, Vernon Philander, Lungisani Ngidi and Ben Laughlin are the fast bowlers whom he loves watching.

The South African pace brigade has been relentless in the ongoing series against India so far, and it has been their pace brigade which has given the Proteas an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series.

Youngsters Kagiso Rabada and Lungisani Ngidi have performed brilliantly in the series and Ngidi, in particular, was superb on his debut match at the SuperSport Park in Centurion.

Morne Morkel, on the other hand, has been a pillar for the South African bowling attack and along with Steyn, the bowling duo has dominated star-studded batting line-ups in their illustrious careers so far.

Rabada recently rose to the numero uno status for the Latest ICC Test Rankings for bowlers courtesy some sensational performances in the recent past. Ben Laughlin has been an impressive first-class bowler. However, he hasn’t been able to realize his potential in the international circuit.
