Dale Steyn slams ‘midlife crisis’ comment in his tweets

KARACHI: The South African fast bowler of Quetta Gladiators, Dale Steyn, voiced his disappointment at some of the remarks made by the commentators during the match against Peshawar Zalmi.

Although the fast bowler did not list any commentator voicing vexation on Twitter, it was evident from his article that the bowler was referring to New Zealander Simon Doull.

“What commentator said I had a mid-life crisis?” In his first of three tweets, Steyn asked on Saturday night.

Simon was told “Mid-Life Hair Crisis” as the TV screens showed Dale Steyn alone in the dressing room while Quetta was pounding.

“If it’s your job to talk about the game, so do that. But if you use the airtime to harass someone for their weight, personal choices, racial origins, habits, etc, or even hairstyles, then I’m afraid I don’t have time for you as a person. You and someone else want that to be fair,” the South African cricketer said in his second tweet.

Steyn didn’t have a successful outing during Quetta’s game against Zalmi on Friday. He conceded 44 runs from four overs, including 21 from the penultimate when he was struck by three sixes – Rutherford and Wahab Riaz.

“It was a wonderful time last night to play in front of the crowds again, cricket is so much easier that way,” he added of playing his first PSL 6 match.

“We’ve lost, but we intend to pull things together in our remaining games. Thanx for support Have a nice weekend for everybody,” he continued to complete a sequence of tweets.
