Dale Steyn on Michael Holding’s best list
The great Michael Holding has picked South African Dale Steyn among his top-four fast bowlers across generations and his list includes fellow West Indians Malcolm Marshall and Andy Roberts, besides Australian Denis Lillee.
In a Sky Sports podcast, the 66-year-old said he would pay to watch Steyn, who retired from Tests last year.
“I have experience with those three guys (Marshall, Roberts and Lillee... But Dale Steyn has been one of the great fast bowlers in an era. Will pay to watch him,” said Holding.
Talking about Lillee, Holding said he was a complete package. “Lillee had it all: rhythm, aggression control. He was extremely fast when he started, but he had to completely reshape his action after a back injury.”
