ICC Champions trophy : Rohit Sharma reveals toughest fast bowler he faced in his career
Indian opener Rohit Sharma has revealed that the toughest fast bowler he has faced in his career is Dale Steyn. When host Alan Wilkins asked him about the toughest fast bowler he has faced, Dhoni said: “Dale Steyn. We've seen over the years what he has done for his country. It is always challenging to play against him. Since I've started opening it's become even more challenging. I've always enjoyed playing against him, always competitive, so I think I'd say Dale Steyn.” The Indian opener was attending a fundraiser, which was organized by captain Kohli’s foundation, along with the entire Indian team. Dale Steyn is widely regarded as one of the best bowlers of his generation and his tally of over 400 wickets is proof of that. Even in limited-overs, the Proteas speedster has been a revelation. But the 33-year-old has never dismissed Rohit in either ODIs or T20Is while many of his compatriots including Morne Morkel, Imran Tahir and part-time bowlers like JP Duminy have done so. In fact, the only time that the South African fast bowler has dismissed Rohit Sharma in international cricket came early in his Test career.
