The 14th season of the Indian Premier League i.e. IPL 2021 is to begin from April 9. The inaugural match is to be played in Chennai between Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore. The second match of the tournament is to be held between Delhi Capitals and Chennai Super Kings at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai (Mumbai). Delhi Capitals have already suffered a setback before the start of the tournament. Captain Shreyas Iyer, who led Delhi Capitals to the finals for the first time in IPL 2020, has been out of the tournament due to injury. In his place, the team’s command has been handed over to Rishabh Pant. Not only team management, fans also have high hopes from Rishabh Pant. However, before the start of the tournament, the Delhi Capitals have again suffered a setback. His star spinner Akshar Patel has become Corona positive. He is a Quarantine these days.
According to reports so far, even if his next corona report came negative, he would not be able to play in the team’s first match against Chennai Super Kings. Lack of letters can cause trouble for Delhi Capitals. However, Aakash Chopra, a former opener of the Indian Test team, believes that the lack of letter will not eat the team. Aakash Chopra said on his YouTube channel, ‘Delhi Capitals are a very strong team. It can take on the Mumbai Indians. He said, ‘The biggest strength of Delhi Capitals is the Indian Corps. They have Shikhar Dhawan, Rishabh Pant, Prithvi Shaw, Ajinkya Rahane, Ravichandran Ashwin, Akshar Patel. He is also followed by Umesh Yadav and Ishant Sharma. Amit Mishra is also there. I mean this is the best Indian core. Many of these are match winners. He has consistently performed well. I mean to say that Delhi Capitals have a lot of reasons to smile.
Akash Chopra also made some predictions. He said, ‘There is no big deal that Rishabh Pant should become the most valuable player of the tournament. At the same time, Prithvi Shaw’s strike rate is the highest in this team. This year will be good for Prithvi Shaw. Good runs will be scored off the bat and runs will be scored very fast, because this player kills 2-3 fours in an over for a time pass. Kagiso Rabada will take the most wickets. Not only this, it cannot be said whether Delhi Capitals will win the title this time, but they will definitely qualify for the playoffs.
