Someone’s loss is someone else’ gain, they say; the adage holds good for the South African speedster Dale Steyn. The Jamaica Tallawahs signed up the fiery pacer as a replacement for Lasith Malinga. Steyn is currently playing for Glamorgan in the Natwest T20 and had recently bagged a four-wicket haul to show he can be lethal in the shortest format. Steyn, who got to play just one match in the recently concluded IPL 9, will be raring to show his skills on the field for the Tallawahs.
