Dubai: It was “steaming” outside as the South African trio of AB de Villiers, Dale Steyn, and Chris Morris arrived here in the wee hours of Saturday to join their Royal Challengers Bangalore teammates for the upcoming IPL.

Moved out of India due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 13th edition of the T20 league will be played across the three venues of Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah in the UAE from September 19 to November 10.

The video of their arrival was shared by RCB on their official Twitter handle.

“I am very excited, very happy to be here. Travelling was a bit different from normal but we have made it here with my South African friends and we are very happy to be back in the RCB family. I am looking forward to my COVID-19 test,” de Villiers said.

All the Indian players from the star-studded Chennai Super Kings, Royal Challengers Bangalore, Kings XI Punjab, Kolkata Knight Riders, and Mumbai Indians touched down in the UAE on Friday for the world’s biggest T20 league.

“It’s going to be interesting to play in the heat. We got here like 3 am in the morning and it was steaming outside. Looking forward to what’s it going to be like in a few weeks,” said veteran speedster Steyn.

RCB skipper Virat Kohli made his own arrangements to reach Dubai directly from Mumbai following all BCCI SOP.
