Dale Steyn took to Twitter to clarify his stance on the controversy that erupted after an interview went viral on social media in which the South Africa pacer was explaining why he opted out of the upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League. Steyn said his words were never intended to be degrading, insulting or comparing any cricket leagues. “IPL has been nothing short of amazing in my career, as well as other players too. My words were never intended to be degrading, insulting, or comparing of any leagues. Social media and words out of context can often do that. My apologies if this has upset anyone.
Much love,” Steyn tweeted.
Steyn had mentioned that in IPL with so many big names in every squad, the attention shifts away from cricket and there is more emphasis on the amount of money is given to an individual.
