Royal Challengers Bangalore Pacer Dale Steyn Answered Fans’ Questions

Royal Challengers Bangalore had released Dale Steyn from their squad ahead of the IPL 2020 auction. RCB fans were left surprised by this decision. Dale Steyn didn’t get any bid in the first round of the 2020 auction. It looked like Dale Steyn would face the embarrassment of going unsold. But, Royal Challengers Bangalore resigned Dale Steyn as they bought him in the final round on his base price 2 crore.

Royal Challengers Bangalore director of cricket operations, Mike Hesson revealed that buying Steyn was always in franchise’s plans. In fact, Virat Kohli was keen to get back him in the squad. But the franchise didn’t put a bid on the South African as his price would have risen. In last season, Dale Steyn had played 2 matches for RCB before being ruled out due to injury.
