South Africa rolled over India in the just-concluded Test in India. India probably lost the match after tea on December 8, when the fast bowler Dale Steyn blew a irreparable hole in the innings.

Amid all the reports about the match and that Steyn special in particular, this one by Sidharth Monga stood out. It was a delight to see him describe Steyn's spell as "lethal and joyful." Made me wish I had seen it.

High class fast bowling, especially against a batting line-up as pedigreed as India's, is like that: breathtaking, awe-inspiring and yes, joyful. Thank you, Sidharth Monga.
