South African veteran fast bowler Dale Steyn on Wednesday apologized for criticizing the Indian Premier League (IPL), saying he had no intention of ‘degrading or insulting’ the world’s largest franchise-based T20 cricket tournament . Stein said that his statement was exaggerated on social media that cricket is often forgotten in the IPL amidst talk of money.
Stan tweeted, ‘IPL has been great in my career, for other players as well. I never intended to demean, humiliate, or compare it to any other league. This happens many times due to social media and words being exaggerated. ‘ He said, ‘If I have disappointed anyone with this, then I ask a lot for it.’
Steyn has apologized after Pakistan Super League Six, claiming that more money is given to sports than importance in the IPL. Steyn is playing for Quetta Gladiators in this league. Stan said that this is one of the reasons why he does not regularly participate in the tournament.
What did stan say
Stan, playing in the Pakistan Super League (PSL), was shocked in an interview to a YouTube channel, saying that the Indian League has only name-fame. The game is ignored. The matter did not end here. He described Pakistan Super League and Lanka Premier League as superior to the world’s largest cricket league ie IPL. In the video that is going viral on social media, he is seen saying – When you go to play IPL, there are so many squads there. There are a lot of big names and there is a lot of emphasis on the earnings of the players, due to which cricket is forgotten.
IPL 2021 not playing
Dell are not playing in IPL 2021. He had made his team Royal Challengers Bangalore aware of this by tweeting at the beginning of the year. The RCB, captained by Virat Kohli, welcomed Steyn’s decision and released him. If seen, he has not been very effective in the PCL this season as well. For Quetta Gladiators, he has taken two wickets for 44 runs in 4 overs in a match.
