Veteran South African pacer Dale Steyn slammed a commentator for commenting on his hairstyle during the Peshawar Zalmi vs Quetta Gladiators match in HBL Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2021. Taking to Twitter, Steyn lashed out of Simon Doull for calling his long hair a crisis. Referring to Steyn's long hair, the former New Zealand cricketer was heard saying, "A little mid-life crisis with that hair," when the camera spotted the fast bowler sitting in the dressing room. His fellow commentator was also heard saying, "Lockdown hair". The Proteas talisman wasn't amused with the remarks on his hair as he expressed his displeasure on Twitter. Wahab Riaz Smashes Dale Steyn for a Game-Changing Six During Peshawar Zalmi vs Quetta Gladiators PSL 2021 Match.

"Which commentator said I have a mid life crisis?" the Quetta Gladiators bowler tweeted on Saturday (February 27).  Within 30 minutes, a furious Steyn made another tweet asking commentators to not 'abuse' any players' personal preferences. "If your job is to talk about the game, then do that. But if you use that airtime to abuse anyone for their weight, sexual choices, ethnic backgrounds, lifestyle etc or even hairstyles, then im afraid I have no time for you as a human. You and anyone else like that to be fair," the fast bowler wrote. RCB Pacer Dale Steyn To Remain Unavailable for IPL 2021, Says ‘No, I am Not Retiring.’
