Dale Steyn has been released by Royal Challengers Bangalore for the next edition of the Indian Premier League and the player is now available to be hired in the upcoming auctions.
It remains to be seen whether Dale Steyn puts his name in the auction for the upcoming IPL 2020 scheduled to be held on 19th December 2019, but a lot of curiosity is rounding on the internet about him amidst the uncertainty.
Therefore, a fan asked Steyn on Twitter during a Q&A session in which team would he like to play in IPL 2020. The fan asked, “Dale, honestly which team do you want to play for in IPL 2020?”, to which Steyn humorously replied, “Whoever can afford me”.

This reply by Steyn has made fans chuckle, and it is certain that Steyn would be picked at a decent price for the flair he brings on the field through his experience.
The South African bowler was released by RCB over his fitness issues. Steyn has been suffering from various issues related to his shoulder and ankle since 2016, which has reduced the number of appearances and form over time.
A shoulder injury in Australia led him to miss a year of cricket after having surgery on it. He returned to cricket in 2018 against India at home, but hurt his ankle and this has resulted in him retiring from Test cricket after playing 93 Tests.
Apart from Steyn, RCB has further released 12 players from the team and would attempt an overhaul in the auctions with a budget of 27.9 crore rupees. Meanwhile, Moeen Ali and AB de Villiers are the only foreign players which were retained by the Bangalore based franchise.
