The Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) on Friday made a major change as they included legendary fast-bowler, Dale Steyn in place of injured Nathan Coulter-Nile, who was ruled out of the tournament owing to a stiff back.

Coulter-Nile was expected to join the RCB team soon after the ODI series against Pakistan but he didn’t and the speculations started about the cricketer’s participation in the league.

ESPNCricinfo confirmed the news of Dale Steyn joining the RCB camp who had gone unsold in the auction in December last year. Rather, the pace bowler will be playing in the Indian Premier League (IPL) after a gap of two years.

He last played for the Gujarat Lions during the 2016 season only in one match. Steyn will also be making a comeback to RCB having played 28 matches between 2008 and 2010.
