Dale Steyn Takes A Dig At A Fan After BCCI Postpones IPL 2021 Indefinitely

The veteran fast bowler from South Africa – Dale Steyn came under the scanner when he chose to participate in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) over the Indian Premier League (IPL). His comments on the Pakistan-based league made the fast bowler an easy target of the fans on social networking sites.

Meanwhile, Pakistan Cricketer Board was forced to postpone the T20 League in the wake of the rise in the number of coronavirus cases earlier this year in March. Dale Steyn also faced heat when PSL 2021 was halted as the fans called him for choosing PSL over the IPL.

Now, BCCI has been forced to postpone IPL 2021 amid the growing COVID19 cases among the players and a potential bio-bubble breach. The decision came after the T20 league reached almost halfway stage with the first 29 matches done and dusted.

With IPL 2021 postponed, Dale Steyn didn’t fail to take a sly dig at a fan who earlier mocked him for the cancelation of PSL 2021. On March 4, the user tweeted, “More time at hand for @DaleSteyn62 to figure out which of PSL or IPL is better. Perhaps also accounting for the fact that once started, the IPL managed to finish!

That time, Steyn simply replied, “Haha you’re funny”.

However, exactly two months after the short conversation, Dale Steyn again remembered that fan and after BCCI postponed IPL 2021. He took a sly dig by writing, “Hi”.

Meanwhile, in another tweet, Dale Steyn prayed for everyone’s safe return to home amid the rising COVID19 cases. The veteran further reckoned that the disease doesn’t have any favorites while sending get well soon message to the infected members.

“Covid don’t care. It has no favorites. Get well to those sick and hopefully, everyone else will get home safe and in good health,” he tweeted.
