IPL 2019: Dale Steyn Takes An Indirect Dig At Ravichandran Ashwin
Of late, the cricket is becoming a batsman-dominating game. The flat tracks and the live-less wickets are helping their case while bowlers are ending up on the wrong side of things. When it comes to shorter formats of the game, it has become a nightmare for the bowlers. Meanwhile, South Africa’s performance analyst picks up his bowlers that got firepower. Meanwhile, Dale Steyn got a quirky reply in his kitty, which seemed like a dig at Ravichandran Ashwin.
The performance analyst of Proteas, Prasanna, who is currently working for Kings XI Punjab quoted that a franchise, who got Kagiso Rabada, Jasprit Bumrah, Imran Tahir and Ravichandran Ashwin would be a great sight in the IPL tournament.
Bumrah- Bowled Rabada- Caught Tahir- Lbw Ashwin- Mankad:
In between, Dale Steyn, who is a good friend of Prasanna gave a tag to each bowler that Prasanna has dreamed. For Bumrah, he gave a tag of Bowled while Rabada got ”caught”. Meanwhile, for Imran Tahir, he gave ”LBW” while for Ravichandran Ashwin, he gave “Mankading”
How good will it be to have jofra archer , Jasprit Bumrah , Kagiso Rabada , Imran Tahir and R Ashwin as your bowling attack in an ipl team? To which, Steyn replied ”Bumrah- Bowled Rabada- Caught Tahir- Lbw Ashwin- Mankad All bases covered there Pdog”
All bases covered there Pdog 🤣

Ever since the off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin affected Mankading to dismiss Jos Buttler, it has become a headliner in the game of cricket. The players across the globe expressed their disappointment for the poor display of the sportsman spirit in a tournament, despite being in the rule book.
It looked like Dale Steyn wants to take a dig at Ravichandran Ashwin, who is using more often than not during the course of the game. Meanwhile, Steyn, who made an entry into the tournament, started well by bagging a couple of wickets in his first match.
Well, it would be interesting to see whether if the same scenario repeats in the future or not. If it repeats in the future, one might see at least a couple of dismissals in that fashion on the scoreboard. Already, we are witnessing its impact in the Indian cricket and on the youngsters
