Speculations are high that South African fast bowler is on his way to India to join the struggling Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the Indian Premier League 2019 (IPL 2019). RCB has had a disastrous start to their IPL 2019 campaign and have lost six out of six matches thus far. The Virat Kohli-led side is languishing at the bottom of the IPL 2019 points table.

Meanwhile, Steyn uploaded a picture of an India visa to his Instagram story. Steyn wrote, “Ahhh, what’s this little surprise” and had some information on his visa hidden. Chances are Steyn is Nathan Coulter-Nile’s replacement in the RCB squad. The Australia fast bowler has not joined RCB yet following the end of series against Pakistan.
Now that Coulter-Nile is yet to join the Bengaluru squad, it is assumed that Steyn will replace him. Steyn, who went unsold at the last IPL auction, has previously played for RCB, now discarded Deccan Chargers, Gujarat Lions and Sunrisers Hyderabad in the IPL.
