IPL 2020 will mark the much-anticipated return of MS Dhoni on the cricket field. The Chennai Super Kings skipper last played a competitive match more than a year ago. After announcing his retirement from international cricket, fans this year will be cheering more for Dhoni and will be wishing to see him at his best.
Much like cricket enthusiasts, Virender Sehwag too is looking forward to seeing Dhoni return to action again. Ahead of IPL 2020, Sehwag stated that this IPL will be extra special as everyone will see Dhoni playing once again which will truly be a delight.
Watching Dhoni Will Be A Delight In the IPL- Virender Sehwag
“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?” Sehwag, who will be co-hosting a show ‘Power Play with Champions’ on Flipkart Video, said.
Dhoni will be leading the Chennai Super Kings in the season opener against Mumbai Indians on September 19. The 39-year-old is expected to be the most-watched out player throughout the IPL season in the United Arab Emirates.
Meanwhile, Sehwag further added that Cricket is inbuilt in the DNA of every Indian and like everyone else he can’t wait for the IPL to begin.
“I’ve spent a lot of my time during the lockdown watching old matches, analyzing them, including my innings. Cricket forms an important part of our DNA as Indians and we’ve waited with bated breath for it to return”, Sehwag said.
Furthermore, the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League will be played between September 19 to November 10. Due to the COVID-19 scare, all matches will be conducted in a completely bio-secure bubble. All IPL matches will be played across 3 venues in the UAE, Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Sharjah.
