With some thrilling finishes and great entertainment all around, the 2019 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) is currently busy satiating the thirst of cricket fans across the globe on the back of slam-bang T20 action. While defending champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK) continue to impress, the misfortunes of Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) so far have left their fans disheartened.
For a side that boasts of some of the biggest names in international cricket including the likes of Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers, RCB have failed miserably to justify their talent, losing six games on the trot with a victory nowhere in sight. The Kohli brigade is in desperate need of a revival in the bowling department that is proving to be a major thorn in their campaign this year.
Australian seamer Nathan Coulter-Nile was supposed to join RCB after the end of their series against Pakistan, but his arrival has now been delayed for reasons yet to ascertained. But, in what could be a major boost to their bowling line-up, Dale Steyn has hinted at a potential arrival in the RCB camp.
The South African speedster, on 11th April, posted an Instagram story that carried a picture of his passport with valid Indian visa on it. "Ahhh, what's this little surprise," Steyn captioned the post.
While the right-arm bowler didn't reveal the details of his upcoming visit to India, the speculations are rife that he might join RCB to save them the blushes this season.

Dale Steyn has been getting smacked in the death overs on a regular basis since his comeback. So it's only fitting that RCB sign him.— Abhishek (@Sajjanlaunda) April 11, 2019
