He may have been wicket-less for a little more than 69 overs but Dale Steyn tastes blood on Day 2 of the second Test against India.
Once he did, there was no stopping him as he hunted down five more to puncture the innings. A look at each of his six victims.

Steyn was responsible for removing Cheteshwar Pujara (70) first. He broke a vital partnership which had cost his side 157 runs.
Off the very next delivery, Steyn made a mess of the stumps behind Rohit Sharma who let the ball through without a hint that it was aimed straight for the wicket.
Ishant Sharma may have dispatched Steyn to the fence when he walked in but it was the bowler who had the last laugh. His heroics helped South Africa dismiss India's last five wickets for 14 runs.
