Former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag says IPL 2020 will be a delight to watch with MS Dhoni back in action for CSK. Dhoni recently announced his retirement from international cricket leaving the whole cricketing world shocked. He was last seen on the field last year in the ODI world cup where Team India was knocked out by New Zealand.
Dhoni has led the Chennai based side to three IPL and two Champions League T20 titles. IPL 2020 is being played in the UAE due to the mammoth numbers of coronavirus cases in India. The tournament will be played from 19th of September to 10th November.
Watching MS Dhoni back on the pitch is sure to be a delight: Virender Sehwag
Just like the Indian fans, even Virendra Sehwag is eager to watch MS Dhoni back on the pitch after a year’s gap. He says the tournament will be an extra special one for the players as well as the audience. Sehwag also told he had been rewatching IPL games during the lockdown and analyzing them.
“I think this tournament will be extra special for everyone – the players as well as the audience…watching Dhoni back on the pitch is sure to be a delight. There’s so much in store, need I say more?” Virender Sehwag, who will be co-hosting a show ‘Power Play with Champions’ on Flipkart Video, said.
“I’ve spent a lot of my time during the lockdown watching old matches, analyzing them, including my own innings. Cricket forms an important part of our DNA as Indians and we’ve waited with bated breath for it to return” Virender Sehwag said.
CSK ready to battle for their 4th IPL title:
CSK are without veterans Harbhajan Singh and Suresh Raina in this IPL, but still, have a strong team in their hands to compete for the title.
The Chennai Super Kings squad had to go through an extra week of quarantine after 13 squad members including two players tested positive for COVID-19. The two players that tested positive were Deepak Chahar and Ruturaj Gaikwad.
CSK will face MI in the IPL opener on 19th September. The IPL 2020 will be played between September 19 and November 10. The matches will be played in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and Sharjah respectively.
