Dale Steyn Slyly Praises Bumrah, Indirectly Refers To The Fiery Form Of SRH Batsmen

This year the Indian Premiere League has shown itself to be a very high-scoring tournament. In just 35 matches, the T20 tournament has seen 15 200 scorer matches, 5 matches out of which were actually above 250. Three out of these 5 250+ scoring matches were by Sun Risers Hyderabad, a team to definitely be wary of.

Yesterday’s face off between SRH and DC led to SRH scoring 266 and winning by a margin of 67 runs. It was definitely their game in the powerplay with Travis Head and Abhishek Sharma scoring 125 runs. They also came out to score the fastest team hundred in just 5 overs. It’s safe to say that SRH is a team that bowlers are now facing tough luck with.

Taking to social media platform X, former South African pacer Dale Steyn jokingly said that he’s glad to not be a bowler in the current times. He later clarified that in fact it’s a high time for bowlers to show their true worth and stand out from the lot.

Here’s what Steyn said about Bumrah

In his tweets the former SA quick joked about being glad that he’s no longer a bowler. In the same tweet though, he explained that it is the best time to be a bowler by showing your true worth.

 “I could make a joke and say I’m glad I’m retired and no longer bowling, but…It’s always a good time to be a bowler, if you can make yourself the best, you’ll be a wanted god among mere mortals. The slayer of rampaging runs! Insensitive’s have never been higher. I’d wana be a bowler more than anything!” His tweet said.

When a fan commented to just directly say that he’s talking about Bumrah, Steyn replied with “well, exactly that” 

Fan : “Just shorten it and say, ‘Be a Jasprit Bumrah!’”

Dale Steyn: “Well, exactly that.”

Bumrah holds the purple cap

Jasprit Bumrah is currently the purple cap holder, with 13 wickets for Mumbai Indians in the tournament so far, he has also been the most economical bowler this season, giving an average of just 5.96 runs per over. The MI pacer has shown himself to be a big asset for the franchise with special restrictions in the death overs as well, where he has picked six wickets (most of them being in IPL 2024) at an economy rate of just 6.89
