All hell broke loose when South African seamer Dale Steyn took a dig at the Indian Premier League for being too money centric and terming the PSL more rewarding. Today, he took to Twitter and apologized to Indian fans for hurting their sentiments and stated that it was not his intention.
Dale Steyn has his say!
IPL has been nothing short of amazing in my career, as well as other players too.— Dale Steyn (@DaleSteyn62) March 3, 2021
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.
Here is how the others reacted:
What do you think?
Such a shame that u have to clarify this— Raj Gupta। राज गुप्ता ।🇮🇳🕉️ (@Graja0235Raja) March 3, 2021
You don't have to make statements on such small things. People needs to get mature. You have your own opinion. ur statement cannot hurt anyone it was just a normal statement. Looks like people get upset too easily nowadays#DaleSteyn #IPL https://t.co/dS1JEooJR2
