DUBAI (Agencies) - South African pacer Dale Steyn has become only the 20th bowler to break the 900-point mark in the ICC rankings for Test bowlers after claiming six scalps in his sides eight-wicket win over Australia on Friday. Steyn began the Cape Town Test on 899 ratings points and earned three ratings points for his efforts of 4/55 and 2/23 to become only the second South Africa bowler after Shaun Pollock to achieve the rare distinction. In rankings terms, 900 or more ratings points means a player is truly outstanding, a benchmark for the very top bowlers. It is very special for me to join the 900-point club. There are a lot of world-class players in that region and it is an honour to be in their company, a delighted Steyn said. When I go out and bowl I hardly ever think of the rankings, for me it is about representing my country and giving my best for the team so sometimes it means a lot to receive the recognition. At 902 ratings points, Steyn is 17th in the all-time ratings list with an excellent chance of moving further up that list provided he puts up another stellar performance in the second and final Test which starts in Johannesburg next Thursday.
