The 13th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2020) will be played in the UAE from 19 September to 10 November. After the announcement of the IPL date, cricket fans, franchisees and players have got excited. This year is very difficult for the cricket world. The IPL 2020 was scheduled to begin from March 29 at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai, but could not be caused by the corona virus epidemic. Now all IPL matches will be played in UAE in Abu Dhabi, Sharjah and Dubai. This year the tournament is going out of India, so it is still difficult to guess about the favorite team. However, many veterans say that this year Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) may have a chance to win this tournament.

Royal Challengers Bangalore, captained by Virat Kohli, have not won a single IPL title so far. Cricket pundits believe that RCB have a very balanced team with players who can find success in the UAE. Former Australian fast bowler Brett Lee also feels RCB could be successful this year, but Virat Kohli must do something for this.

“I just want Virat Kohli to go there and enjoy his cricket,” Brett Lee said in Star Sports’ Cricket Connected. As a captain and player all the pressure has to be removed.

He said, “Because Virat Kohli is very good, but I feel that sometimes the pressure from all around in the team increases, then people start failing.” He tries to carry all the players on his back. The entire RCB team should help relieve Kohli’s pressure.

Former Indian cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar, meanwhile, praised RCB’s purchase of Aaron Finch. He said that apart from Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers, he could be another big player for the franchise.

He said, “Aaron Finch is the player from whom I hope he can give a little stability to the team.” The team has a lot of class, attitude and genius. In such a situation Finch can be the player who can combine all of these together. ”Brett Lee agreed with Manjrekar and said that Kohli should make Finch his vice-captain this year.
