Dale Steyn Joins Shaun Pollock as South Africa’s Joint Highest Test Wicket Taker
Dale Steyn became South Africa’s joint highest Test wicket taker on Saturday in the second innings of the first Test against Sri Lanka at Galle, equalling fellow fast bowler Shaun Pollock’s record of 421 dismissals. Steyn removed Sri Lanka's last batsman Lakshan Sandakan for six to claim his 421st wicket, forcing the tailender to give a simple catch to Tenda Bavuma at point. Steyn took 21 Tests less than Pollock, who ended with 421 wickets after 108 Tests, to reach the landmark.
