Playoff round begins in IPL from today
The league phase of IPL-2021 (IPL 2021) is over and the playoff round is starting from today. Four teams have made it to the playoffs, three-time winners Chennai Super Kings, two-time winners Kolkata Knight Riders, Delhi Capitals and Royal Challengers Bangalore. The captain of Chennai is Mahendra Singh Dhoni (MS Dhoni), while the captaincy of Kolkata is part of Eoin Morgan. Delhi Capitals is captained by young Rishabh Pant. At the same time, the command of Royal Challengers Bangalore is in the hands of Virat Kohli. These four captains have brought their team here and now would like their team to win the IPL title. Former Indian team opener Gautam Gambhir has given his opinion about these four captains.
He told what kind of captain all these are in his eyes. Gambhir is counted among the successful captains of IPL because under his captaincy Kolkata has won the IPL twice. However, Gambhir is not much impressed with the current Kolkata captain Eoin Morgan. Talking to ESPNcricinfo, Gambhir said, “Morgan’s point of view. I don’t know because he doesn’t captain this team, video analyst does the captaincy of this team. He watches the video analyst so I don’t know if he is the captain on the field or the captaincy is being done from off the field.
Said this about Kohli’s captaincy
However, Gambhir was impressed by Virat’s captaincy. He said, “Virat has done a great captaincy. To be honest, I didn’t like his captaincy, but this time he has done a wonderful job. The reason for this may be that he knows that this is his last season as captain. That’s why he wants to enjoy it as much as possible. He is relaxed and this time he has good bowlers.”
Said this thing about Pant, Dhoni
In the first qualifier, Pant’s Delhi faces Dhoni’s Chennai. Regarding the captaincy of these two, Gambhir said, “Definitely who can handle the pressure well from the captaincy point of view, it is Dhoni. Pant has got the advantage that he has a lot of experienced players in his team. If Steve Smith plays, he will get his advantage. They have Ravichandran Ashwin who has captained in the IPL. That’s why for me Dhoni is the No. 1 captain at the moment.
