After months of suspension of speculations, the 2020 IPL season will finally kick off from 19th September in the United Arab Emirates. The wait is over for the billions of cricket fans for their beloved blockbuster cricket league, and the inaugural match is a mouth watering face off between the defending champions Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings. Meanwhile, former Aussie speedster and a legend of the game Brett Lee names his IPL 2020 Champions, and the veteran picks the MS Dhoni led CSK.
Chennai Super Kings suffered some major blows recently. For starters, the team’s stalwarts Harbhajan SIngh and Suresh Raina decided to exit from the tournament, followed by a whopping 13 COVID-19 cases in the franchise contingent, which also included two cricketers.
However, with both the cricketers now testing negative, and the team back in prep work for their inaugural match against Mumbai next week, the three time champions will be eyeing their fourth IPL silverware. The tournament will also mark Dhoni’s return to the pitch after almost 1.5 years.
Meanwhile, former Australian international Brett Lee, who previosly played for Kings XI Punjab and Kolkata Knight Riders, takes to a social media session with his fans, where he names the Chennai based franchise as his IPL 2020 champions.
