IPL 2023: Watch! Dale Steyn gets floored while interacting with young Indian player


Sunrisers Hyderabad and its fans are getting ready as they are set to host Mumbai Indians. The game on Tuesday will see the 5 time champions take on the 2016 champions at Hyderabad. Mumbai have played 4 games with 4 points, while Hyderabad are also having the same amount of points. Mumbai are placed at 8th in the table, while Hyderabad are 9th in the table. A win for either side will propel them up the table and bring them closer to the top 4 place in the table.

The story so far –

Sunrisers Hyderabad are sitting 9th in the table after having played 4 games with points. The team got off to a bad start with 2 losses in two games as they made a stirring comeback with wins over Punjab and Kolkata.

Dale Steyn gets floored by Indian youngster –

Former South African pace ace, Dale Steyn was known to be terrifying for his pace. Post his retirement from the game in 2021, the fast bowler has become a coach. Steyn is now the fast bowling coach of Sunrisers Hyderabad.

Post the game against Kolkata, fast bowlers Kulwant Khejroliya and Vaibhav Arora were seen chatting with Steyn. The South African great was heard telling the two to get in touch with him if they need any tips. That’s when Khejroliya said that “You were my first Instagram DP.

Steyn’s reaction leaves everyone humbled –

Once Dale Steyn heard this, the South African was stunned for a moment before asking the Indian bowler if it really was the case. When the Indian bowler replied in the affirmative, Steyn seemed to be taken aback albeit in a very happy manner.

Big game for Mumbai and Hyderabad –

Both Mumbai Indians and Hyderabad have the same form coming into the big game on Tuesday. Hyderabad began the season with a loss to Rajasthan Royals before losing to Lucknow. They won the game against Punjab before thrashing Kolkata thanks to a century by Harry Brook.

Mumbai on the other hand began with a loss to Bangalore before being beaten at home by Chennai. The 5 time champs found their mojo with a last ball win last week against Delhi before winning against Kolkata on Sunday afternoon. The likes of Ishan Kishan and Surya Kumar Yadav have found their form in time as the big clash against SRH looms large.
