South African legendary pacer Dale Steyn made a strong verdict about the South African pace batteries. He said Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje could help South Africa to win the ICC T20 World Cup.
Steyn is well known lethal pacer of his time, and he made some finest moments on the cricket pitch in his career. Now, as a commentator, he keeps his eye on every game and gives his prediction.
“Rabada is the leader of the South African attack. I’m hoping South Africa can go on and win this World Cup and his double-up with Anrich Nortje as my other fast bowler from South Africa. I think the two of them are just fantastic,” Steyn said.
“They’ve got great pace and good skill, especially in Australia. Rabada seems to be level up, whenever he gets to Australia, so I’m looking for that competitive streak to come out of him, and the two of them can go on and help South Africa to win this World Cup.”
However, Dale Steyn picked his other top three other bowlers in the ongoing T20 World Cup who are performing well and can play an essential role in winnings.
He mentioned Mark Wood, an English pacer, and said he is his favorite bowler.
“Mark Wood is a favorite of mine from England. I saw him the other night, and he told me he’s going to bowl well. I think he’s the first fast bowler to bowl all 24 balls in his spell of four overs over 140 kmph. He didn’t look to bowl one slower ball, and he’s just absolutely fantastic. He wants to rush batters, bowls a great yorker and a fantastic bouncer, and I think if England is going to go all the way, Mark Wood’s going to take them there.”

At Last, he stated Australian pacer Mitchell Starc, who is currently the most lethal pacer of this era.
“He’s just a fantastic fast bowler and the most experienced bowler in Australia, and he has won the World Cup several times. Heaps of experience again, another big wicket-taker, left-arm, something different, he scares the batters with sheer pace, and just through exceptional experience over the years and World Cup-winning medals, he knows how to win tournaments.”
