The first match of IPL 2021 will be played on April 9 at M Chidambaram Cricket Stadium in Chennai between Royal Challengers Bangalore and defending champion Mumbai Indians. Starred players Glenn Maxwell and RCB, decorated by Kyle Jamison, will be looking for their first IPL title this season. RCB’s Mohammed Siraj, Navdeep Saini and Washington Sundar have recently made their mark in international cricket and skipper Virat Kohli is confident that all three players will perform well in Bangalore this season.

Kohli spoke about how it helped him to play internationally when he was younger during the IPL and that it could also happen to Washington and Siraj, who have performed well in recent Test matches. Speaking before the start of IPL 2021, Virat said, “As a young man, I had a lot of help in the IPL with confidence playing internationally. Vashi, (Washington) Navdeep Saini and Siraj were doing well and UG (Yuzvendra Chahal) also got to know its personality for a short period of time which helps us to be strong as a team and move in the right direction. ‘

Kohli takes great satisfaction from the fact that the presence of young players in their squad can be a headache for the front line. He said, ‘Our young men have gained experience and are confident. Now the rival team knows that these players can make an impact at any time, which is a good sign for us. Like the UAE last year, this time no team will take home advantage after the tournament is played on India’s ground, and according to Kohli it is good. “There is nothing better than playing at Chinnaswamy Stadium but the good thing is that we are playing in India and one positive thing from last year is that this time it will not benefit any home ground,” he said.
