Steyn, who retired from Test cricket in 2019, had a commentary stint at the T20 World Cup after calling time on his career in August

Mumbai: South African pace legend Dale Steyn on Thursday arrived in India to kickstart his new journey as the bowling coach of Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Indian Premier League beginning here on March 26.

The 38-year-old, who hung his bowling shoes last August, will join the SRH coaching staff that comprises head coach Tom Moody, batting coach Brian Lara, and spin bowling coach Muttiah Muralitharan.

“Yeah, very happy to be back. I’ve been in India for quite some time so I’m quite excited to be back. Just driving from the airport brought back so many memories,” Steyn, who has taken 97 wickets in 95 matches for Sunrisers Hyderabad, said in a video posted by the franchise on twitter.

“I’ve been here before, whether with the South African or IPL teams, so I’m excited. A new role for me, a coaching role which I’m really excited about. It’s a whole new role looking at the players, which is fantastic. I’m looking forward to hitting the ground running.
