Dale Steyn Annihilates Pakistan Fan With Epic Reply To Taunt On Twitter
Dale Steyn destroyed a Pakistan fan who tried to troll the South African fast bowler on Twitter.
Dale Steyn is one of the most lethal fast bowlers to ever take the cricket field and it seems he is just as lethal off the field as well. The South African pacer, who was rested from the Twenty20 International (T20I) series at home against Pakistan, decided to catch up on other international matches from the comfort of his couch. However, one Pakistan fan mocked Steyn's absence from the South Africa squad by saying that he needed "some comfort after that spanking by Babar Azam in the Test series".
You sure need some comfort after that spanking by Babar Azam in the Test series.— BernaLeo (@MQunClub91011) January 31, 2019
Instead of ignoring the troll, Steyn decided to hit back and came up with an epic reply to completely annihilate the Pakistan fan.
Yes, 3-0 in the test series is a proper spanking. #burn— Dale Steyn (@DaleSteyn62) January 31, 2019
The Pakistan fan tried to diffuse the situation by saying that he was just trying to get a reaction out of Steyn but other fans were having none of it and hailed the South African bowler for his "lethal" reply.

Dale Steyn recently achieved a remarkable landmark. During the first Test of the three-match Test series between South Africa and Pakistan, Steyn dismissed Fakhar Zaman to become the highest Test wicket-taker for the Proteas.
Steyn broke the record he shared with Shaun Pollock with Fakhar Zaman becoming his 422nd victim.
Zaman's dismissal brought to an end more than three years of frustration during which the fast bowler missed no fewer than 27 Test matches because of injury.
In the first match of three-T20I series on Friday, Faf du Plessis and Reeza Hendricks shared a record partnership as South Africa ended a nine-match Pakistan T20 winning streak.
South Africa prevailed by six runs in a tense finish after being sent in and making 192 for six.
Pakistan came close, scoring 182 for nine.
