Steyn questions South Africa’s T20I squad against Pakistan


KARACHI: Dale Steyn was not happy with South Africa’s T20I squad for the home series against Pakistan next month. 

Reacting to the squad on Twitter, Steyn questioned selectors for dropping main players like Faf Du Plessis and David Miller from the squad.

“I missed the reason why our big dogs aren’t playing the T20s against Pak?” he asked.

It must be noted here that Pakistan and South Africa will play three T20Is. After Pakistan, South Africa has also announced their white-ball squads for the tour. The 17-member T20I and 22-member ODI squad will be led by Temba Bavuma.
