Kimberley, Oct 4: Dale Steyn needed 117 matches to score his maiden one-day international half-century, at the age of 35 and playing his first ODI in nearly two years, and nobody was more surprised or delighted than the man himself.
Steyn, one of the premier bowlers of his era, made 60 on Wednesday, which helped his side to a 120-run win against Zimbabwe to take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series. He had added 75 runs for the eighth wicket with Andile Phehlukwayo to set up South Africa’s total of 198, an ICC report on Thursday said.
"That wasn't me!” joked the pacer after his knock. "I was discussing the lunch, and the next thing I knew, I was in to bat!” Steyn said. (UNI)
