Stan said this about IPL
Let us know that earlier South African fast bowler Dale Steyn had described the Pakistan Super League (PSL) as better than the Indian Premier League (IPL) of India. After this statement by Dale Steyn, all the fans on social media were infuriated by him. Dale Steyn had said, ‘Apart from IPL, playing in other leagues is more rewarding for you as a player. The biggest focus in IPL is on how much money a player is earning.
When you go to IPL, there are such big squads, so many big names and so much emphasis on maybe the amount of money players earn and everything like that, so sometimes, cricket gets forgotten.When you come to like a PSL or LPL there is an importance on the cricket.Dale Steyn pic.twitter.com/xadKxcKnyv

Dale Steyn said, ‘Money in the IPL is more important than cricket. There are so many squads in the IPL that players tend to value money more than cricket, but cricket is more important in PSL. After this statement by South African fast bowler Dale Steyn, fans on social media took him on target. Fans flared up on Twitter after hearing Dale Steyn’s comment about the IPL and he lambasted Stein fiercely.
If you bowled so many runs in the IPL on your bowling,
So many runs in the over, so the IPL is not spoiled due to this,
And in any other league, you get a wicket, it does not make that league good.

Stan not part of IPL 2021
Stan said in January this year that he would not be a part of IPL 2021, but would continue to play in other leagues in the world. The South African bowler has taken 97 wickets in 95 matches of IPL, in which his best performance is 3 wickets for 8 runs. In the last few years due to injury, he has played only 12 matches (IPL) in the last three sessions.
