After what seemed like a never-ending break, the IPL is back! As usual, the Challengers will be hoping for a stellar performance from the team, who came so close to winning the title last season. Here are 10 things we are looking forward to this year!
Virat Returning From Injury
Our captain had had a great year, but unfortunately suffered a shoulder injury against Australia. While he won’t be playing at the start of the tournament, we can’t wait for the fireworks when he returns!
Chris Gayle Returning To Form
One of the most explosive players in the history of the IPL, Gayle has always entertained the crowds like nobody else. Last season wasn’t his best, as he didn’t score as many runs as the fans would have liked. But it’s a new start and a new season. We’re sure the Gayle storm will return!
The AB de Villiers Specials
Mr. 360 has made a mark for himself over the years, thanks to his one-of-a-kind shotmaking skills and inimitable technique. We’re sure to see some more spectacular innings from ABD this season!
Kedar Jadhav Making A Mark
Having scored impressive centuries for India over the season, we can’t wait to see Kedar Jadhav take the IPL by storm!
Parvez Rasool Showcasing His Talent
The J&K spinner hasn’t managed to get too many opportunities for India, but we’re sure he’ll be spinning webs around opposition batsmen this IPL.
Shane Watson's captaincy
An IPL legend, Shane Watson will now get the opportunity to lead the side in the absence of Virat Kohli. Can he make a difference? We can’t wait to find out!
Watching Varun Aaron bowl
One of the most exciting Indian fast bowling talents, Varun Aaron has been plagued by injuries for a large part of his career. But this IPL may just reverse his fortunes and give him the confidence he needs!
The Young Guns
RCB has a history of producing quality young players and this year is no different! Look out for the likes of Avesh Khan and Billy Stanlake to grab headlines.
The RCB Brigade
What makes RCB different from the rest of the teams? The fans! We can’t wait for a packed Chinnaswamy echoing with the chants of ‘AARRR...CEEEE...BEEEE’!
Winning The IPL
We’ve come so close in the past, but this year, we might just go all the way. We have the players, we have the fans and we have the drive. Let’s do it!
