Dale Willem Steyn ( born 27 June 1983) is a South African cricketer who plays in Tests, T20 Internationals and One Day International cricket for South Africa. Steyn plays domestic cricket in South Africa for Titans. He is a right-arm fast bowler, and can bowl at speeds of around 145–156 km/h (his fastest being recorded at 156.2 km/h during the 2010 IPL, Bangalore Royal Challengers against Kolkata Knight Riders). His fastest ball in international cricket was clocked at 155.7 km/h (96.8 mph) against New Zealand, making him tied for 4th fastest active bowler with Lasith Malinga as of 3 January 2015. Steyn held the record for the fastest South African to reach 100 wickets in Test Match cricket, a feat he achieved on 2 March 2008. Before Ravichandran Ashwin broke the record, Steyn held the record of taking the most number of wickets – 78 – in a home season, 2007–08.

In July 2018 during the first test against Sri Lanka, Steyn became the joint leading wicket taker alongside Shaun Pollock for South Africa in test matches with 421.

Recovering from surgery, he missed the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy but was named in the South Africa A squad for their tour of England a few months later. However, he returned to competitive cricket in November 2017, a year after the injury, playing for the Titans at the Ram Slam T20 Challenge. After 14 months of injury, Steyn played his first international Test match against India and picked up a wicket in just 14 balls. However, on day two of the same Test, Steyn damaged his left heel. This ruled him out of the rest of the series, with a recovery time of 4 to 6 weeks. Two days later, he was ruled out of the rest of the series.

He spent his first three seasons in the Indian Premier League with Royal Challengers Bangalore.

Steyn was one of the players to go for over a million dollars in the auction for the fourth edition of the Indian Premier League. He was bought by the Deccan Chargers for ₹1.2 million. After Deccan Chargers were terminated from the IPL he was drafted to Sunrisers Hyderabad.

In the 2016 IPL auction, he was bought by Gujarat Lions for ₹ 22.3 million.

He has an economy rate of 6.72 in his IPL career which is the seventh best in IPL history.
