His overall T20 record is magnificent. He has taken 259 wickets in 225 matches at an average of 21.96 and an exceptional economy rate of 6.82.
Steyn may not be the bowler he used to be a few years ago, but he is still a marquee signing for PSL. He will be the spearhead of a young fast bowling unit of Quetta Gladiators, and Quetta’s management will be looking to Steyn to share extensive knowledge of the game with the young pace attack of Naseem Shah, Mohammad Hasnain, and Usman Shinwari.
Quetta will be in action against Lahore Qalandars on Monday, 22 February, in their second match of the competition.
