Delhi has by no means gained the Indian Premier League title. However, the workforce had a great run within the final season as they completed third within the factors desk. “Any team can win the tournament. Mumbai I feel is a favourite but all teams are equally balanced and I hope Delhi will do better in the coming days of the tournament,” Gambhir advised ANI. “Delhi has not won this tournament till now so Delhi people will also love to see their team winning and it’s third year of Ricky Ponting with the team so he should deliver this time. I hope Shreyas Iyer and his combination will take Delhi to heights,” he added.
This 12 months’s IPL is being performed within the UAE because of the coronavirus disaster. The event will probably be held in a biosecure setting.
“I hope it’s a successful tournament and I think players will make it successful and they should follow all the guidelines as well which BCCI has applied it’s gonna be a good tournament,” Gambhir stated.
“I think a lot of moods will change and that’s very important, a team will win but the important thing which will come out from this tournament will be that mood of the nation will change which is important as well,” he added.
The 13th version of the league begins right now, with CSK taking part in Mumbai Indians within the event opener.
“Mumbai is a very settled side with depth and will have to see how they will start this tournament because they never start the tournament well. But if they will start in a better way then are surely favourites,” Gambhir stated.
Delhi Capitals will tackle Kings XI Punjab of their opening sport of the event on September 20.
