April 7 (CRICKETNMORE) - South African pace bowler Dale Steyn has signed for Hampshire. The 34-year-old will join the county in June and train ahead of South Africa's tour of Sri Lanka, which starts in July.
Steyn has 419 Test wickets, just 2 behind Shaun Pollock, the leding wicket taker in five day game for Proteas.
"Dale is one of the best bowlers in the world and is extremely motivated to get going after a frustrating period on the sidelines," said Hampshire director of cricket Giles White. "It seems a great fit for both parties -- we hope that we can help him get back to his best and we look forward to welcoming him to Hampshire."
