- A genuinely fast bowler, who moves the ball away from right-handers.
- Recalled to the Test side in April 2006, he responded with his first five-wicket haul, as New Zealand were routed in the first Test at Centurion.
- Finished the three-Test series with 16 wickets, and made a fine impression throughout.
- Took 3 for 129 in the first Test against Sri Lanka in July, and 5 for 82 in the first innings of the second match even as South Africa slumped to a 2-0 series whitewash.
- South Africa won the 2008 Test series in Australia with Steyn picking up five wickets in each innings in the deciding Test as well as assisting JP Duminy in a last wicket stand of 180.
- Records figures of 7-51 against India in February 2010 after a spell of 3.4 overs yielded five wickets for just three runs with the old ball.
