IPL 2021 cricket Tamil News: With the 14th IPL series set to start on the 9th, the first match of the series will be played at Chepauk, Chennai. The reigning champions Mumbai Indians will take on Royal Challengers Bangalore in Bangalore. The former champions Chennai Super Kings will take on Delhi Capitals in the second match on October 10.
While both the teams are undergoing intensive training at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai for the match, Delhi captain Shreyas Iyer has been ruled out of the series due to a shoulder injury. So he will be replaced by Indian wicketkeeper Rishabh Bandh as captain.
Rishabh Bandh has said that facing his mentor and former captain MS Dhoni in the first match of the series will give him a good experience and will use all the tricks learned from him.
« My first match as captain will be against Mahi (MS Dhoni) Boy. It will be a good experience for me as I have learned a lot from him. My own experience as a player and M.S. I will also use the tricks I learned from Dhoni. And I will try to do something new against CSK, ”Rishabh Bandh said in a statement issued by Delhi Capitals.
Rishabh Bandh has shown his best in recent international matches. He also improved his batting style. Having received international attention for his outstanding performance, he is often compared to former captain Dhoni.
Bandh, who has scored 2,079 runs in 68 IPL matches so far, has been training hard to take Delhi to the final this year.
“I look forward to making the most of this opportunity. We have not even won an IPL title yet. I will try my best to get it this year. We have been playing better as a team for the last two-three years. Our arrangements are going well.
All players are in good form. They will all give their 100 percent. Everyone is happy with the team environment. That’s what you want as a captain. «
When asked about the team’s head coach Ricky Ponting, he said, « He (Ricky) has been our best coach for the last two-three years. Brings him energy to the players on the team. And you think this is the man you can learn a lot from, and then there is nothing better than that. With his efforts and with the help of the entire team, we hope to win this year’s title, ”said Bandh.
