Hours after Pakistan Super League called postponed due to the rise in COVID-19 cases, South African pacer Dale Steyn faced heavy backlash on social space on Thursday. Steyn had a couple of days back said that PSL according to him is more rewarding than IPL. This comment did not go down well with fans, who are now lashing out at him and having a laugh at his expense.

Steyn – who was playing for Quetta Gladiators in the PSL 2021 -asserted that the game of cricket often takes a back seat in IPL because money is given more importance. “I think when you go to the IPL, there are such big squads and so many big names and so much emphasis on maybe the amount of money players earn and everything like that, so sometimes, somewhere down the line, cricket gets forgotten,” Steyn was quoted as saying.
Steyn pulled out of the auction after Royal Challengers Bangalore released him.
