Former South African pacer Dale Steyn is known to give nightmares to the batters during his playing days. Watching Steyn destroying the stumps with his lethal deliveries used to be a sight to behold for cricket fans. With the same precision, the ‘Steyn Gun’ is now destroying trolls with his cheeky replies on social media. Dale Steyn was at his hilarious best as the former pacer gave a befitting reply to a fan who said Jasprit Bumrah is a better bowler than him.

Steyn posted a picture on his Twitter account after a successful fishing session. He could be seen carrying a fish in his hands in the picture. However, one Twitter user was in the mood to mess with the former Protea pacer and commented, “Bumrah is better than you.”

As usual, Dale Steyn decided to give it back and replied, “Im sure he is, I’m retired.”

What’s next for Dale Steyn and Jasprit Bumrah?

Steyn is currently enjoying his life post-retirement. He is part of Sunrisers Hyderabad’s star-studded coaching staff, where he is teaching the young pacers the art of pace bowling. Dale Steyn finished his cricketing career with 699 international wickets across the formats. He is often regarded as one of the greatest pacers ever to grace the game.


On the other hand, Jasprit Bumrah has made giants strides in world cricket ever since his debut. He has emerged as the Indian pace bowling attack leader courtesy of consistent performances across the format.

Cricket fans often compare ‘Boom-Boom Bumrah’ with the former legendary pacers. However, he still has a long way to go, and to be on the same list as Dale Steyn, Jasprit Bumrah will have to stay at the top of his game for a prolonged period.

Currently, Bumrah is representing Mumbai Indians in the IPL 2022, where the five-time champions are struggling badly. This season, the Blues are yet to open their account after accumulating four losses in four matches.
