New Delhi, Apr 12 : South Africa fast bowler Dale Steyn will replace injured Nathan Coulter-Nile for the remainder of the ongoing IPL season, RCB team management confirmed on Friday.  S African Pacer went unsold at the auction but will play now an IPL game after a two-year gap. He last played in the league for Gujarat Lions in IPL 2016. However, according to the RCB team management, Steyn will only be available from April 16, which means he will not feature in RCB's next two games - against KXIP on April 13 and MI on April 15.
