IPL 2019: Three Possible Replacements For RCB’s Dale Steyn

It seems like it is one such year, which Royal Challengers Bangalore never wanted again. Nothing is going in favour of the team despite doing everything that they are capable of. After losing back-to-back games, they brought Dale Steyn, who helped the team to a couple of wins. But, unfortunately, they lost his services, who injured his shoulder. Meanwhile, we figured out three Possible Replacements For RCB’s Dale Steyn.

Here are the replacements:

3. Dan Christian:

The Australian cricketer is in scintillating form when he appeared in the Big Bash League. He got the knack of picking wickets and also can whack those balls out of the park with ease. Christian failed to attract any bid in the IPL 2019 auctions but he can well come into the tournament and produce those match-winning performances for the team.

The addition of Christian will also bring depth to their batting as well. He can be the perfect match-finisher, which allows them to use Stoinis higher in the order.

2. Morne Morkel:

The lanky fast bowler is another option for the team. He can be lethal for the team with his bounce and Pace. Morkel can deliver the goods with ease in the powerplay overs and also a handy option in the death overs of the game as well

He recently called curtains on his career, which will help RCB to have him for the whole tournament. The experience of Morkel would be the key to the franchise.

1. James Pattinson:

This lad would be the perfect replacement for Dale Steyn in the RCB camp. He is pretty similar to Steyn, who can offer Pace and Swing by adding a pinch of aggression to it. Pattinson is one of those aggressive cricketers, who got all the ingredients to play under or alongside Virat Kohli on the field.

The Extra-Pace of Pattinson would certainly help Virat Kohli-side, who always pressed the importance of the swing and Pace combination. He already got a good domestic record under his belt.
