South Africa and India had to play a three-match ODI series.

The first game of the series was washed out in Dharamshala. As the teams reached Lucknow for the second game, the situation in the country worsened and BCCI called off the tour.

Dale Steyn Reveals The Player With Whom He Will Quarantine

“ I would love to be in quarantine with someone like Quinny de Kock.” Steyn told ‘ESPNCricinfo’.

Explaining the reasons behind his choice, Steyn said de Kock is a ‘proper cook’ and staying with him would allow him to watch all the fishing videos the left-hander watches.

“He is one of my favourite people in the world. If you walk into his (hotel) room, he’s either making flies for fishing or he is watching a fishing video or he is watching a cooking video. And when you are at his house, he’s doing the same stuff,” Steyn said.

“I hate cooking, so it would be great if he was. Because then I could watch all the fishing videos that he’s watching, I could help him do all the tying, and he could cook all the food. He’s a proper cook,” he added.

Coronavirus Seems The Only Topic Of Discussion: Steyn

“It just seems like it is the only topic of conversation. Any WhatsApp groups that I’m part of, it’s really tough to escape. Normally if I am on holiday I’ll be planning a fishing trip or a surfing trip. At the moment I am just chilling at home,” Steyn said.

He added, “We were under that kind of hotel arrest – advised not to go out and wander the streets, which is totally fine; I don’t want to break protocol and (have) something happen and be blamed for cricket never being played in Pakistan again because I did something stupid.”

Steyn, who returned from Pakistan due to the virus outbreak, said it’s indescribable how the situation changed in a matter of hours. He was playing for Islamabad United in the Pakistan Super League which was suspended on the day of its semifinal clashes.
