Rohit Sharma Names Dale Steyn as Toughest Bowler He’s Faced

India’s cricket captain, Rohit Sharma, has named South Africa’s Dale Steyn as the toughest bowler he has faced in his career. Despite being one of the most successful batters in international cricket, Rohit admitted that facing Steyn was always a challenge.

Steyn, known for his pace, accuracy, and ability to swing the ball, was a formidable opponent on the field. Rohit revealed that he had watched Steyn’s bowling videos multiple times before facing him, highlighting the respect and preparation he had for the South African legend.

“I have gone and watched his videos like 100 times before I went in to bat. That was Dale Steyn. He is an absolute legend of the game. And what he has achieved in his career is just superb to watch. And I have faced him many times. He is quick. He used to swing the ball at that pace, which is not easy. It is quite tough. And he was a fierce competitor. He just went out there wanting to do everything, to win every game and every session, so it was nice to come up against him. Not that I had much success against him, but I enjoyed my battles,” Rohit said in an interaction with Dubai Eye 103.8.

Although Steyn dismissed Rohit only once in international cricket, their face-offs were memorable, especially during India’s tour of South Africa in 2013. Rohit acknowledged that Steyn’s skill and competitive spirit always made their battles intense and enjoyable, despite not always being successful against him.

This isn’t the first time Rohit has praised Steyn’s bowling prowess. Last year, he mentioned during an interview that Steyn was one of the bowlers who challenged him the most, emphasizing Steyn’s ability to swing the ball at high speeds.

Steyn, on the other hand, has also praised Rohit, calling him a phenomenal batter who leads the team from the front. Despite their competitive on-field encounters, both players have mutual respect for each other’s skills and contributions to the game.

The acknowledgment from Rohit Sharma, one of the best batters of his generation, speaks volumes about Dale Steyn’s impact and legacy as a bowler in international cricket.
