Dale Steyn Gave A Savage Reply To Trolls On Twitter: The Internet is a great place but sometimes it can be a cruel place too, with trolls repeatedly trying to bring you down at the expense of some entertainment and the people they worship. While some people know the art of giving it back to the people, others just like to ignore this.

Legendary South Africa pace bowler Dale Steyn recently hogged the limelight on social media, however, for all the controversial reasons. Steyn was part of some ‘silly banter’ on Twitter after he didn’t wish Australia spinner Nathan Lyon, who recently picked 400 wickets. He is only the fourth Australian bowler to scale Mount 400, which also ended his wait for 326-days.

In no time, the cricket fraternity flooded the social media with their congratulatory messages for the cricketer on achieving this great milestone, with some legendary names like Shane Warne, Ricky Ponting, and other greats coming together for the off-spinners big moment in Test cricket.

However, Dale Steyn remained one of the notable absentees from the cricket world. The fans were quick to notice that Steyn hadn’t wished. On Monday, Steyn finally took to his social media and hailed Nathan Lyon on achieving this milestone. He wrote:

“Take a bow Nathan Lyon 400 strong! Keep going bud! Congratulations”

Here, check out the Tweet:

When a fan tried to asked him as to why he was late on wishing Lyon, Steyn informed him about the tragedy. “Yes I apologize as my grandfather passed away and I was with him and my family during that time,” he replied to the fan, who has now deleted his Tweet.

Following this, Steyn received quite a few condolence messages but there were many who came up with friendly banters. Responding to the trolls, the former speedster came up with a sarcastic Tweet that read:

“Some silly banter going around as I’m a little late in congratulating Nathan for his 400th poll. My apologies, I’ll be sure to put my family tragedies aside next time as cricket is clearly more important,”
