Dale Steyn's 6 for 100 saw the Indian batting collapse at the hands of the world's best Test side in Durban. The tourists lost their last five wickets for just 14 runs to get bundled out for 334. This effort saw Steyn get involved in certain records which are as follows:

# Dale Steyn has taken six wickets in an innings, conceding 100 runs in India's first innings.  He has become the first South African bowler to take six wickets or more in an innings  three times vs India in Tests - the first two instances were 7 for 51 at Nagpur in February 2010 and 6 for 50 at Kingsmead, Durban in December 2010. (Day 2 report)

# Steyn is the first bowler to produce four instances of five wickets or more in an innings at Kingsmead, Durban, eclipsing the three by Hugh Tayfield (South Africa). (Scorecard)

# Steyn became the third bowler to capture 35 wickets or more at Kingsmead, Durban - 35 at an average of 23.88 in seven Tests, joining Shaun Pollock (44 in 12 Tests) and Makhaya Ntini (43 in 10 Tests). (Highlights)

# Steyn's tally of 48 wickets (ave.17.79) in 9 Tests this year in Tests is bettered only by Stuart Broad (62) and James Anderson (51). (Pics)

 

# Abraham de Villiers has effected five dismissals or more in a Test innings four times - twice vs Pakistan and once each vs India and England.  His tally of five dismissals in an innings four times is surpassed only by Mark Boucher (14 times) for South Africa.

# Jacques Kallis (200) is the second fielder after Rahul Dravid (210) to complete a double century of catches in Test Cricket.
