Donning the predictor’s hat, the former Australian fast bowler Brett Lee defined the possible champions of the most sought after Indian Premier League 2020 to be conducted in the UAE from the 19th of September.
With the heartbeats on an all-time high as the opening match of IPL 2020 amongst the two champions: The Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings just a few days to go, the Australian fast bowler Brett Lee made this statement on his social media handle.
Lee chose Captain cool’s Chennai Super Kings to be the winner of the most awaited, 13th edition of the Indian Premier League which is scheduled to begin from this 19th of September. During his isolation period, when Lee landed in Mumbai, for being a part of the Indian Premier League coverage, this fast-bowler decided to involve himself in a small Q&A session on Instagram with his fans.
He answered questions from both on and off the field. Here is where he was caught to answer this question by a fan to name the possible champions of this season of the Indian Premier League 2020. To this Lee replied that it is a tough question to be answered right now but he would want to go with Chennai Super Kings.
Team Chennai Super Kings has been in news recently as 13 team members were tested COVID-19 positive and the training session in Dubai was delayed due to this reason. This was not the end of bad luck for them that two senior players, Suresh Raina and Harbhajan Singh decided to move back to India and withdraw themselves from the event due to personal reasons.
The management team, however, has full faith in the team. They state that the entire team is in good shape and they are yet to announce the replacement of both the outgoing members Raina and Harbhajan.
Team Chennai Super Kings is no doubt one of the viewers favourite. The three-time IPL winner team with India’s most successful and experienced captain has all eye-balls on it.
Lee, on the other hand, has been a part of several squads under the IPL banner like Kings XI Punjab, Kolkata Knight Riders etc. has great hopes on team KKR. He called the new recruit Pat Cummins in team KKR a World-Class choice. Lee further stated that he sees team Kolkata Knight Riders also in this year’s IPL play-offs.
