The revolution that social media has brought is immense in several ways. It has decreased the gap between celebrities and fans. There are several occasions when they actually reply to their fans’ comments. Cricketers are not behind in it and they have been seen doing a live interacting session with their fans. They always keep sharing images or videos to keep the fans engage.

Dale Steyn

Dale Steyn is definitely among the most active cricketer on social media, who every now and then keeps replying to fan messages on a social media platform. The veteran bowler had a funny chat with his Indian fan on Thursday, where he was asked about taking up the duties of Indian bowling coach.

Steyn was in a mood of replying the messages and sensing an opportunity, Ankur Sharma off Uttar Pradesh launched his query towards South African pacer. He asked, “If India promote you as their fast bowling coach will you?”

The Proteas player was in good mood and gave a funny reply, which reads; “They better pull out the credit card”

The 35-year-old has breached Shaun Pollock’s record and become the highest wicket-taker for South Africa in Tests. He was expected to touch this landmark in 2016 but a flurry of injuries kept him on the bay for two good cricketing years. Though, now he is fit and raring to play cricket for another two-three years

Steyn’s injury woes started during Perth Test in 2016

The ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 is all he is preparing for at the moment. He will be seen leading the South African bowling line-up for one last time in the tournament. Steyn would love to remove the stains of the last World Cup’s loss and lead his team to the triumph this time around.
