Dale Steyn & Morne Morkel - 'Perfect Pairings'

In the latest edition of Fever-Tree introduces Perfect-Pairings, the focus is on South Africa duo Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel, exploring their partnership as the spearheads of the the Proteas bowling attack.

With a total of 1,147 international wickets between them, the two fast bowlers have been terrorising batsmen for over a decade.

Steyn made his Test debut in 2004 against England and has since become one of the finest bowlers in South Africa’s history.

The 34-year-old has taken a staggering 417 Test wickets at bowling average of 22.30 and has 26 five-wicket hauls to his name.

Renowned for his searing pace and subtle skill, Steyn has played 61 of his Tests alongside Morkel, picking up 303 of his Test wickets in that time.

Tall and ackward - particularly for left-handed batsmen - Morkel began his Test career in 2006 against India and has taken a total of 250 Test wickets for South Africa.

Bowling alongside Steyn, Morkel has managed to take 213 wickets, meaning South Africa have been rewarded with a staggering 516 wickets between the pair over their 61 matches together.
