Proteas speedster Dale Steyn on Wednesday overtook Shaun Pollock to become the most successful bowler for South Africa. Steyn achieved this feat when he took the wicket of Pakistan's opener Fakhar Zaman in the 1st Test match at Centurion.

Ahead of the Boxing Day Test, speaking to EspnCricinfo Steyn said, "I’m just looking forward to getting out there. I’ve been answering that question about that record for about two years now so we’ve passed that."

He further added, "I have got a lot of wickets in me than just one more. I haven’t saved myself to take one more wicket than Polly. There is a bigger goal at the end of the day. It’ll be a beautiful thing to happen to me if it does. These honours are great things to achieve and I’ll be highly honoured. But when I do, I’ll get back to the end of my mark and try and take another one. That’s the plan."

It is learnt that the 35-year old has played just six Tests in the last three years due to injury. Talking about his return from the injury, the Proteas seamer said, "Many people don’t know the seriousness of that injury. You can’t just pick yourself up and start going again."

"But it was wonderful to have that break. I got a lot closer with my family, something a lot of us struggle with because we’re on the road for so long. I was able to build great relationships with people who are close to me. And travel while I’m still young and come back really excited to play cricket at the highest level. I feel like I’m 23," he added.
