South African speedster Dale Steyn expressed his displeasure over the ‘mid-life crisis ‘ remark made by New Zealand’s cricketer-turned commentator Simon Doul over his hairstyle during the Pakistan Super League contest between Quetta Gladiators against Peshawar Zalmi.
The incident happened during the match when the camera panned on the 37- year old Dale Steyn and speaking about Steyn’s long hair, Simon Doul on commentary was heard saying ‘ A little mid-life crisis with that hair’. In reply Gower, his fellow commentator said ‘Lockdown hair’.
Miffed with the remarks, Steyn took to Twitter and asked: “Question Which commentator said I have a mid-life crisis?”
In his second tweet, Steym let it rip stating that commentators should stick to talking about the game and not use the airtime to abuse, anyone.
Steyn concluded with his third tweet of the day writing that it will good to play in front of the crowds and that Quetta will try to perform better in the remaining matches of the PSL 2021.
Steyn scalped two wickets but conceded 44 runs in his four overs. The Quetta Gladiators lost the match and are at the bottom of the points table.
For the unversed Dale Steyn is widely regarded as one of the best bowlers of his generation. However, his bowling in the shortest format while playing for different leagues around the world hasn’t been up to scratch lately.
