5 Players Who Can Replace Dale Steyn In Royal Challengers Bangalore
The first name that quickly springs to mind is of Aussie speedster Mitchell Starc. Australia has played for RCB before and the management will again be aiming to have him in IPL 2021 in place of Steyn. He has played 27 IPL games and taken 34 wickets while going at 7.17 runs per over.
RCB has always lacked a quality bowling option at the death and Starc can surely solve that longstanding problem. The left-arm seamer is a genuine wicket-taker and RCB will have their eye on Starc when the mini-auction takes place before the next season.
