Dale Steyn, the fast bowling giant in whose hand the ball was a puppet has drawn curtains on a long and illustrious international career. His numbers speak for themselves – 439 Test wickets, 196 victims in one-dayers and 263 T20 scalps. The Proteas firebrand announced the decision to retire from all forms of the game through his Twitter handle, bringing to an end a glittering 17-year stint, during which he kept batsmen on their toes and viewers in constant thrall.
