South Africa’s pacer, Dale Steyn has queried on the dismissal of the senior players as the Cricket South Africa (CSA) has on-screened the ODI, T20I squads against Pakistan.
Team Pakistan is scheduled to voyage SA this April for an ODI and a T20I series. Later on, the men in green will be busy playing against Zimbabwe.
Discussing the topic, as the IPL 2021 is scheduled to begin by 9th April, many senior players of SA will be seen in India as they are auctioned by their respective franchises.
The hidden terms behind Dale’s tweet are to question whether the players are preferring league over national commitments.
Here is the Tweet:
I missed the reason why our big dogs aren’t playing the T20s against Pak?
