Why Dale Steyn enjoyed his team's embarrassing defeat against India
South Africa may have crashed to a 130-run defeat against Indian on Sunday, but speed gun Dale Steyn seems to have enjoyed the game despite the outcome.
New Delhi: South Africa may have crashed to a 130-run defeat against Indian on Sunday, but speed gun Dale Steyn seems to have enjoyed the game despite the outcome.
Though the 31-year-old speedster would have wanted to end up on the winning side, the reason for him enjoying the game against India was the electric atmosphere at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
Steyn took to micro-blogging site Twitter to express his sentiments.
Losing sux! It really does! But I can't say I didn't enjoy yesterday's game, that atmosphere was electric!!! This WC is alive! Off 2 Sydney

The official attendance at the MCG for India's game against South Africa was 86876, which even bettered the 84336-strong crowd for Australia's opener against England.
The huge turnout was predominantly due to Indian fans, which was even complimented by former England skipper Michael Vaughan.
India Cricket fans really are incredible... The colour and noise at the MCG is a picture... #ICCWorldCup2015
