Steyn signs with Melbourne Stars


Melbourne Stars have signed South Africa fast bowler Dale Steyn for a six-game stint at 

the start of the upcoming Big 

Bash League season, reports Cricinfo.

Steyn had long been on the Stars wishlist and he joins fellow South Africans AB de Villiers and Chris Morris in the BBL, after de Villiers signed with the Brisbane Heat and Morris with the Sydney Thunder. Steyn joins Nepal legspinner Sandeep Lamichhane as the Stars' second overseas signing.

"It's something that I've wanted to do for a while, play Big Bash," Steyn said. 

"Unfortunately representing the Proteas for the bulk of my career over Christmas time we've always got Test matches on, the Boxing Day and New Year's Test matches. So I haven't been available. But since retiring from Test cricket, it's opened up a little window for me while the Proteas play red-

ball cricket."
