Steyn ready to unleash WACA fireworks

He's a man for the big occasion, and paceman Dale Steyn is backing himself to produce the killer blows as South Africa attempt to snare a rare Test series win in Australia.

Steyn, who sits atop the ICC's Test bowler rankings, has been below par in the current series, with the 29-year-old snaring just five wickets at an average of 51.6.

It's a far cry from his career haul of 292 Test wickets at 23.98 apiece, in which his searing pace and sharp bounce have often left batsmen the worse for wear.

South Africa will retain their No.1 Test ranking if they can draw the third Test against Australia at the WACA Ground, starting Friday.

But Steyn says the tourists are determined to win just their second Test series in Australia, and he wants to be the man who delivers the goods when the moment asks for it.

"We didn't come down to Australia to draw," Steyn declared on Wednesday.

"Australia has thrown everything they can at us and they still haven't beaten us.

"If we can play to what our potential is I think we're going to go home 1-0, and that would be fantastic.

"I always pride myself on standing up and doing something when we really need it and hopefully in this game something like that can happen.

"There's a bit more want, a bit more need. It all boils down to the last five days, and that extra push.

"I'll do everything I can in this game to try and get a result and get the wickets to win this Test match."

Steyn took a day off training on Wednesday in a bid to refresh his body after bowling 40.4 overs in the drawn Adelaide Test and 30 overs in one innings in Brisbane.

The right-arm quick said his No.1 ranking among Test bowlers was more a reflection of his ability to stay injury free rather than being the most talented.

"I don't think I'm the best bowler in the world," Steyn said.

"I'm not the most skillful bowler in the world. There's probably other bowlers that are more skillful than me.

"I'm just fortunate enough that I play every game for South Africa, and I'm able to take wickets when we need them. Hopefully I can take wickets in this next game. That's what I'm employed to do, and that's what I love doing."
