The Pakistan Super League (PSL) has well and truly gained the highest level of popularity across different countries in the world. Not just in Pakistan, the highly celebrated T20 league is also loved and watched across different cricket playing nations.
The Pakistan Super League (PSL) has completed four successful years and the tournament is now shifting to Pakistan completely for its latest edition in February 2020. The glitzy tournament used to be hosted in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) initially. For the upcoming edition of the PSL, the franchises have tried their best to make the possible squad for the next month’s tournament.
Two times champion Islamabad United has got the services of the former no.1 Test bowler Dale Steyn. Dale is going to make his debut in this year’s Pakistan Super League (PSL). The Proteas fast bowler has a vast experience of international cricket and he has been playing in different T20 leagues around the world. Dale Steyn was the best bowler in the ICC Test rankings for more than 3 consecutive years in the early 2010s.
He has also participated in the Indian Premier League (IPL) and he recently featured for the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the last edition under the captaincy of the current Indian captain Virat Kohli. Inclusion of Dale Steyn in the squad of Islamabad United is certainly going to be helpful not only for the franchise but for the overall branding of the Pakistan Super League (PSL).
Dale Steyn is not a small name and him playing in the PSL is going to send a very positive message. The PSL 2020 is completely scheduled in Pakistan and that makes it even better as the fans are going to see stars like Dale Steyn playing in front of them.
Pakistan Fans Welcome Dale Steyn To The PSL-5
In the platinum category round during the HBL PSL Draft last year, Islamabad United had no shilly-shallying in picking the fast and furious Dale Steyn. Steyn-Gun is going to play in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) for the first time and it seems that the Proteas fast bowler is anticipating a lot of fun during his stay in Pakistan next month.
In a video message for Islamabad United fans, Dale Steyn confirmed his participation in the highly-celebrated T20 League of Pakistan. He also added that he is going to feature for Islamabad United and he’s expecting the fans to come out in huge numbers and support them.
Dale Steyn also tweeted and confirmed his participation in the upcoming Pakistan Super League (PSL). The fans also reacted to his post and said they can’t wait to see the champion bowler playing in front of them.
Dale Steyn is going to bring in all his experience as he’s going to be very helpful in giving advice to the young fast bowlers of Pakistan.
Young bowlers like Musa Khan and others are very lucky to have someone like Dale Steyn in the squad and they must and maximize his experience.
