Plagued by injuries, Dale Steyn’s hopes of finding an Indian Premier League (IPL) team suffered a blow on Sunday as the South African pace ace went unsold.

Starting at a base price of Rs 1 lakh, the South African—who made a comeback recently only to suffer an injury again—found no takers. Once considered the most destructive bowler in the world, injury and form woes could be the reason behind the franchises not going for him.

Earlier, Eoin Morgan and Alex Hales--two of England's star players--also went unsold.
