See what Shane Watson wrote:
I have to say, @DaleSteyn62 was consistently the best bowler I faced throughout my career. I feel like he never bowled me a bad ball. Such an fierce competitor on the field, but such a sweet and super kind person off it. Enjoy the fruits of retirement. You deserve it mate. 👊🏼👊🏼 https://t.co/N2qa5KLXLG

'You made the game richer'
Not many bowlers are both fearful and respectful. Dale Steyn is the rare pace bowler who had the batsmen shaking their heads in admiration even after getting out. You made the game richer Dale Steyn. @DaleSteyn62

A walk down the memory lane:
Before the famous Nagpur test,I was part of the team that played the touring Southafricans. It was my first taste of the big boys and my first ball hit the thigh pad so hard,I looked up and @DaleSteyn62 said "Hi,good morning!"
Happy retirement #legend!#DaleSteynretires
