Fans have been eagerly waiting for the upcoming season of the Indian Premier League, as this time it will go old school, as it will conducted as its been during the pre-covid phase. In the meantime, the inagural promo of this extravagant event has come out that has featured several players of the Indian team in exciting avatars, including Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya.
Skippers featuring in the IPL Promo
Skippers of several franchises including Gujarat Titans, Mumbai Indians and Lucknow Supergiants have featured in the promo with their captains including Hardik Pandya, Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul respectively. The promo got out in TV as well as in social media, via the twitter handle of Star Sports, who captioned the promo as ‘Shor On, Game On’ for the sixteenth edition of the league.
Hardik Pandya’s GT gonna start things strong
The defending champions Gujarat Titans who will be led by their skipper Hardik Pandya will start things strong in the inaugural match this season against Chennai Super Kings. On the other hand, Chennai Super Kings who are a four-time IPL winner, are also not going to let things go that easily, especially this season which is probably the last time fans will see CSK’s skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni in action.
This season will be more special too as BCCI has introduced a new rule this season with the inclusion of ‘impact player’ in the playing team. Franchises will be asked to list four of their substitutes at the time of toss and can use only one of those players in the match. Certainly the team will choose among the players depending upon the situation, i.e., if a bowler is needed then they will certainly not go for a batter, and vice versa.
