Cricket legend Dr Ali Bacher has seen South African cricket come a long way. He reflects on the country's best bowlers and more.

Former South African captain and cricket boss Dr Ali Bacher says Proteas speedster Dale Steyn is one of the greatest bowlers South Africa has ever had.

Bacher has co-written the new book South Africa’s Greatest Bowlers: Past and Present with top journalist David Williams.

He joined CapeTalk host John Maytham to discuss the history and transformation of South African cricket.
