As Delhi Capitals and Chennai Super Kings prepare to lock horns with each other in IPL 2021 on Monday (October 4), former India opener Virender Sehwag compared the captains of both the teams – Rishabh Pant and MS Dhoni. Made a big statement.
According to Sehwag, Dhoni who was Pant’s mentor in his early days must be wondering how his prodigy got the better of him.
“Today’s match is between Delhi and Chennai. Sometimes, seeing Pant’s innovation, Dhoni would say, (Sehwag shared Hrithik Roshan’s meme from War movie) ‘He used to be my student, now maybe he is his teacher’ Has overtaken.’ (He was once my student but now he is ahead of his teacher)” Sehwag said while speaking on his Facebook Watch show virugiri.com.
Sehwag also feels that CSK will benefit Because of Dhoni’s vast experience, but he thought Pant’s team would win tonight’s match.
“Dhoni is Dhoni. Chennai is on top and Delhi is second. Both teams would like to be in the top two as they have an advantage in the playoffs. Even if they lose a match, they have another chance. It seems Today Delhi will win.” Virender Sehwag concluded.
Notably, CSK and DC have been the two most influential teams in the UAE leg, having lost just one match to reach the play-offs so far. However, the match will still be crucial for both the teams as they aim to finish in the top two, which will give them two shots to reach the final of IPL 2021.
