The IPL 2021 edition will begin on April 9 with defending champions Mumbai Indians taking on Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the season opener.
Earlier, speaking to ANI, opening batsman Mayank Agarwal had spoken about the camaraderie in the Punjab Kings camp and also opened up on his bond with skipper KL Rahul.
“Well, KL Rahul is terrific and it is amazing to be playing with him. This is the fourth year that we would be playing for Punjab and it is really nice. We understand each other’s game, we gel really well. That communication on the field becomes a lot easier because of the friendship we have,” said Mayank.
“This team has whatever it takes to turn things around, but with that said, keeping the momentum and playing good cricket would be very important. We have seen that over a few years, our strength lies once we win a few games, we make it a cluster of a lot of wins together. It is fantastic to play under Anil Kumble (Director of Cricket Operations) and Wasim Jaffer (batting coach) with the wealth of knowledge they have,” he added.
