Chennai Super Kings and Delhi Capitals met on the stage of IPL yesterday. The two captains are Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Rishabh Panth. They are guru-disciples on and off the field. Guru Dhoni lost to his disciple yesterday. At the end of the match, Delhi Capitals captain Rishabh Panth praised Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
Before the match started on Saturday, Indian coach Ravi Shastri wrote on Twitter, ‘Guru and Chala are facing each other this time. Today will be great fun. A lot of noise will come from the side of the stump mic. Keep your ears alert. ‘ Therefore, the newly appointed captain of Delhi Capitals has mentioned that the moment of going to toss with the guru is one of the most memorable moments of his life.
Depending on the stormy innings of Shikhar Dhawan (65 off 54 balls) and Prithviraj Shaw (72 off 36 balls), the Delhi Capitals won by 6 wickets. After the match, Rishabh said, “Going to toss with Mahi Bhai as captain in the first match of IPL is a special moment for me. I learned a lot from him. If I have any problem, I run to Dhoni. ‘
Bangladesh have lost the last five Tests outside the country by an innings. In the last eight innings, the batsmen could not bring even 25 runs to the team. No one has scored a century in these eight innings. In this situation, Sri Lanka tour is ahead again. Shakib Al Hasan and Mustafizur Rahman are not on that tour. Before going on tour, the Bangladesh Test captain’s worries are all over the place. However, he is satisfied with the bowling.
Mominul Bahini will fly to Sri Lanka on Monday. Earlier in the day, the captain told a news conference on Sunday that his batting was very important. Not just bowling. In the last two or three series, the batting did not go as well as we had hoped. Batting is much more important to me. If you look at the last four or five series, the pace bowlers are doing very well, even the spinners. Thinking like that, I am very happy with the bowlers.
Bangladesh have never played a Test in Pallekele, Sri Lanka. The last Test against England at this ground in November 2016 saw the reign of spinners. Muminul said about the new field, ‘I have never played there before. The first time (stadium), when I was in the under-19 team, in 2006 or 2009, I played. Now I hear that there is a little bounce. There may be some grass. Sri Lanka’s wicket is as sporty as it is. I think cricket will be very good and challenging.
