The modern-age cricketers’ love for body art is well-known to those who follow the sport. Steyn, who has made a comeback to Test Cricket recently, is seen checking Umesh Yadav’s tattoo in a recent post by BCCI’s official Instagram handle.

Umesh is not a part of the playing XI in the first test against South Africa at Cape Town, but still managed to get opposition’s attention. Here’s Steyn taking a look at Umesh’s tattooed arm.


The Indian fast bowler got his first tattoo after he lost his mother in 2012. The 30-year-old speedster has fifth tattoo inked on him.

Steyn himself is a big body art enthusiast. Here’s Steyn showing off his Tatts.
