South Africa speedster Dale Steyn completely destroyed a troll on social media after the latter tried to make fun of him using a Babar Azam remark. The Proteas thrashed Pakistan 3-0 in the recently-concluded Test series and also won the ODI series 3-2, with Steyn playing important roles in both the victories.

It all started with Steyn —who is not part of the T20I series between the two teams — posting a Tweet on social media which read: “Okay that’s enough from me. Watching this Test from the comfort of my couch, did I just become a armchair critic? #WhoAmI”. 

One of the social media user commented by saying: “You sure need some comfort after that spanking by Babar Azam in the Test series.” 

But Steyn was having none of it as he hit back at him, saying: “Yes, 3-0 in the test series is a proper spanking. #burn”. 

The user tried to calm down the situation but the damage had already been done by then.  

The Proteas have got the better of Pakistan in two formats and will look to end it on a high in the T20I series. The two teams are scheduled to play three T20Is in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Centurion respectively.
