IPL 2022: Dale Steyn is likely to join this franchise as bowling coach


The former South African and one of the most feared bowlers Dale Steyn is expected to be part of the backroom staff for Sunrisers Hyderabad ahead of the upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League.

The head of the coach of Sunrisers Hyderabad Trevor Bayliss and the batting coach Brad Haddin have stepped down from their responsibilities after their poor performance in the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League.

Sunrisers Hyderabad has been one of the consistent sides in the cash-rich contest but they rocked the bottom of the table in the previous edition. In addition to that, the mentor of the Hyderabad based franchise VVS Laxman is also not available for the next season, as he has been given the role of heading the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in India.

He has also had 64 and 196 wickets in the T20Is and ODIs as well. Considering the recent reports from other sources, the South African pacer is expected to join Sunrisers Hyderabad as the backroom staff but there are no official reports from both the franchise and Steyn.

Moreover, the former head coach of Sunrisers Hyderabad Trevor Bayliss is likely to join the newly added franchise Lucknow as the official confirmation is yet to be announced by the management. As we all know, the 15th edition of the Indian Premier League will have ten teams this time and we are going to witness a lot of nail-biting contests in the upcoming year.
