New Delhi. Veteran Delhi Capitals batsman Shikhar Dhawan said on Sunday that the return of regular captain Shreyas Iyer will strengthen the team, so that the team will try to carry forward its campaign in the Indian Premier League (IPL 2021) in a great way. In the bio-bubble of IPL 2021, the league was postponed after players and associate members of several franchises were infected with the corona virus. The second leg of the league will be held in the United Arab Emirates from September 19.
Shikhar Dhawan said, ‘We were in a great rhythm in the first leg of the league, but that rhythm was broken as soon as it was postponed. In such a situation, we will have to work hard to achieve that rhythm again. The veteran Indian batsman said, ‘The good thing is that the balance of the team is good and it has become stronger with the return of Shreyas Iyer.’ Iyer missed the first leg of the league due to injury. He suffered this injury in the first match of the ODI series played between India and England in March.
Sunrisers Hyderabad to play first match
The current season’s top scorer so far Shikhar Dhawan said that the team’s focus is on the opening match against Sunrisers Hyderabad in the second leg of the league. The 35-year-old batsman, who scored 380 runs in 8 matches of the season with three half-centuries, said, “It is great to get the rhythm. There is a good atmosphere within the team. All the boys (players) are working very hard and I am eagerly waiting for the IPL season to resume. I am very excited to play the upcoming matches.
