USA staff doesn’t recognize Dale Steyn, teaches South Africa legend how to bowl in a video of epic proportions

Legendary South African pacer Dale Steyn was asked not to chuck while delivering the ball by the US staff during the T20 World Cup season. An 18-year storied career filled with priceless wickets and unforgettable match performances in international cricket for the Rainbow Nation. Legendary South African pacer Dale Steyn is a name that needs no introduction. However, Steyn apparently had to stay humble in the United States when the Proteas’ fast-bowling great was asked not to chuck while delivering the ball.

A member of the USA staff failed to recognize Dale Steyn during the T20 World Cup season. In a video doing rounds on social media amid the T20 World Cup, a US staff member was seen teaching South Africa legend Steyn how to bowl. The viral video has garnered the attention of netizens on Twitter. Steyn is in America as the former South African pacer is an integral part of the star-studded commentary panel for the men’s T20 World Cup co-hosted by the United States and former champions – the West Indies.

Steyn announced his retirement from cricket in 2021. Regarded as one of the best bowlers of his generation, the former South Africa speedster made his Test debut against England in 2004. The former top-ranked Test bowler picked up 439 wickets in 93 games for the Rainbow Nation. The former South Africa star recorded his final Test appearance against Sri Lanka in 2019. Fast-bowling great Steyn was named ICC 2008 Test Cricketer of the Year and Wisden’s Leading Cricketer in the World in 2013. He remained the No.1 bowler in the ICC Test rankings for a record 263 weeks from 2008 to 2014.

Steyn also plied his trade with the likes of Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB), Deccan Chargers, Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), and Gujarat Lions in the Indian Premier League (IPL). With an illustrious career behind him, Dale Steyn continues to inspire future generations of fast bowlers with his skill and dedication to the sport.

The incident with the USA staff not recognizing Dale Steyn serves as a reminder of the humility and respect that even legends of the game must uphold, regardless of their fame and reputation. It highlights the universal language of cricket that transcends borders and brings players from different nations together in the spirit of the game. Dale Steyn’s legacy as a cricketing icon will continue to live on, both on and off the field, inspiring fans and players alike with his passion and commitment to the sport.
