Dale Steyn included in South Africa’s world cup 2019 squad. But he could not play a single game due to injury and ruled out from the world cup 2019. He injured during the Indian premier league 2019 and failed to recover from injury.
Now, Dale Steyn joins the Euro T20 Slam as a marquee player along with Chris Lynn, Babar Azam, JP Duminy and Imran Tahir. Brendon McCullum, Luke Ronchi, Shahid Afridi, Eoin Morgan, Rashid Khan and Shane Watson are the other icon players.
“The line-up of Icon & Marquee Players is shaping up: @DaleSteyn62 is joining Imran Tahir, JP Duminy, Chris Lynn, Babar Azam and Luke Ronchi as Marquee player. England skipper Eoin Morgan, Shahid Afridi, Brendon McCullum, Shane Watson and Rashid Khan have been named as Icon players,” Cricket Netherlands said in a Twitter post.
“I am very excited about the Euro T20 Slam and being a marquee player… I hope to get things going there. I am looking forward to it,” Steyn said in a video message posted by the league organisers.
Six franchises will participate in the Euro T20 Slam from Ireland, Netherlands and Scotland. Euro T20 Slam will play from August 30 to September 22. The final will take place on September 22 in Dublin, Ireland.
