Dale Steyn will be joining the set up as the fast bowling coach, making his first forays into coaching after calling time on his playing career.

He will be working with our bowlers and I am sure they will welcome every second that they will get with Dale. His vast experience and current experience in the game. He’s got a great understanding of the art of fast bowling but he’s also got a great understanding of the opposition having played just recently, “ said Tom Moody in a video posted by Sunrisers Hyderabad.
