Although the first cricket Test match between Bangladesh and South Africa ended in a draw after rain washed out play on Friday and Saturday, Proteas pacer Dale Steyn made the most of the incessant downpour, joining some locals outside his hotel in Chittagong for a game of football.
On Friday, Day 4 of the match, with rain forcing the players to stay put in their hotel rooms, the 32-year-old right-arm pacer tweeted this:
Steyn ended up joining the kids' football game. He termed his move a possible breach of 'every security protocol' and one his coach wouldn't be too happy about but ultimately it was too good to resist.
The fast bowler later retweeted a picture posted by Akramul Haque Anon, one of the locals who played football with him.
