Dale Steyn took to Twitter and tendered an apology to his fans. The speedster has now taken a U-turn and he says that he never meant to degrade or insult the IPL.

“IPL has been nothing short of amazing in my career, as well as other players too. My words were never intended to be degrading, insulting, or comparing of any leagues.

Social media and words out of context can often do that. My apologies if this has upset anyone. Much love,” he tweeted.

“I wanted some time off. I think when you go to 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 by Cricket Pakistan.

The South African pacer had opted out of the IPL 2021 player auction. He was the part of the Royal Challengers Bangalore squad in last year’s IPL but was released by the franchise ahead of player auction.

He is currently playing in the Pakistan Super League(PSL), representing Quetta Gladiators in the tournament.
