One of the biggest disappointments for Indian cricket fans was that April and May which is generally a festival of cricket, due to the IPL which is lived by one and all wasn’t on this year. Of course, not having the IPL is a very small price to pay in the larger scheme of things that the country is going through, but it surely has made it’s presence felt in the last 12 years.
Not just the fans but even players have expressed how dearly they have missed being a part of the biggest cricket league in the world. This includes not just Indian players but big ticket overseas players like David Warner and Glenn Maxwell, who have openly expressed their wish to be a part of the cash rich league.
While the BCCI is still trying it’s level best to go ahead with the event this year due to the possible postponement of the World T20. By all reports BCCI is looking for a September October window. One player for whom the IPL was excruciatingly important this year was KL Rahul. The stylish Bangalore batsman has just had a great white ball season with team India and was anointed the captain of Kings XI Punjab this year.
In an interaction with best mate Mayank Agarwal, Rahul opened up in how dearly he missed the IPL this season. “I actually have missed the IPL a lot. It was going to be a big season for me captaining the team and I felt like we have got some really really exciting players in the line-up,” Rahul told teammate Mayank Agarwal during the show ‘Open Nets with Mayank’ which was uploaded on IPL’s official website.
