Proud of my comeback today, says Dale Steyn

Dale Steyn picked up three wickets in the post-lunch session, breaking the 157-run partnership between Murali Vijay (97) and Cheteshwar Pujara (70). It broke India's batting-order and they were bowled post-tea. This was after the morning session was rained off.

Durban: South African pacer Dale Steyn who carried the attack back to the Indian camp with a sensational six-wicket haul said that he wasn't at all disappointed while not getting any wickets for more than 69 overs as he was bowling well. (Day 2 report)

"I didn't mind the way I was bowling previously. We have to bowl badly to learn from it. And I wasn't bowling badly. I beat the edges so many times. Sometimes you need a soft dismissal to get going and then you can take wickets off good balls, by turning the momentum towards you. So I needed that momentum, and my tail was up and I picked wickets unlike in Johannesburg," Steyn said at the day-end press conference. (Highlights)
