Steyn was clearly not happy.

Latest News

South African pacer Dale Steyn on Tuesday took a dig at the South African cricket board after not being included in the T20 squad for their upcoming India tour.  

Cricket South Africa officially revealed their squad for the T20I series with no Steyn in the squad while Temba Bavuma, Bjorn Fortuin and Anrich Nortje finding a place. 

The 36-year-old then took to Twitter to show his frustration while replying to a tweet, Steyn sarcastically said that the selectors missed his number despite him making himself available for selection. 

“I did… Obviously lost my number in the reshuffling of the coaching staff,” Steyn posted on Twitter.
