Jaipur: Rajasthan Royals all-rounder Shane Watson, who hit form with a blazing century against the Chennai Super Kings, says facing South African speedster Dale Steyn would be an 'ultimate challenge' when his side takes on Sunrisers Hyderabad in an IPL match in Jaipur on Saturday.

"He is the best fast bowler at the moment and surely would be going down as one of the best in the history of the game. It would be ultimate challenge with him speeding with new ball in his hand," Watson, who scored the first century of this year's IPL, said.

"They have a good side but we too have one of the best mix of players. We had a similar team in the first IPL but this year the depth is amazing. Whoever comes in performs. Coach Paddy Upton has given amazing environment to the team and the players love to be with each other," the Aussie said.
