New Delhi: As the second phase of IPL is moving towards its final phase, the matches are getting more exciting. The suspense is increasing regarding the entry of teams in the playoffs. Meanwhile, former Indian veteran batsman Virender Sehwag has given a big statement about Mumbai Indians captained by Rohit Sharma. Sehwag has said that he does not want Mumbai to win the IPL this year as well.
Mumbai won’t win IPL – Sehwag
Virender Sehwag has said that he does not want to see Mumbai Indians but any other IPL team winning the trophy this time. Talking to Cricbuzz, Sehwag said that this time he does not want Mumbai Indians to top the points table. Sehwag wants to see the new champion of IPL this time. Giving the names of three teams, he expressed his desire to see Delhi, Punjab and Bangalore as the winners.
Why Mumbai can win IPL
Regarding Mumbai Indians, Sehwag said, ‘Mumbai is the best team in the IPL and also knows how to counterattack, but Mumbai will have to win all the remaining matches to make it to the playoffs, only then it will be able to make it to the playoffs. However, all the upcoming matches for Mumbai are not going to be so easy.
Taking the history of Mumbai Indians, whenever this team has gone to this situation where the team has to play do or die match, it wins there and not only that the team also qualifies for the playoffs. Sehwag said that I do not believe in history, it is not so easy to do this again and again.
Such is the condition of the league table
Talking about the teams, Chennai Super Kings, who were at the bottom of the IPL points table last year, have qualified with 18 points this year by winning 9 out of 11 matches. After Chennai, Delhi Capitals has also entered the playoffs with 16 points. Virat’s Royal Challengers Bangalore also remains in the race for the playoffs with 14 points and may soon become the third team to enter the playoffs. But there is still a war between many teams for the fourth place.
