Indian Premier League (IPL) ended on Tuesday and Mumbai Indians have now defeated Delhi Capitals by 5 wickets to win their record-extending fifth IPL title. The 53-day event has been a mega hit and BCCI president Sourav Ganguly has himself confirmed that the the TRP ratings have gone through the roof. IPL 2020 brought smiles on the faces of many and the showcase T20 event also made sure that we see ‘numbers’ in different perspectives in these extraordinary times because of the coronavirus pandemic.
IPL is also a tournament which gives the world of cricket many young and exciting cricketers but this time around it has given a bit more. Players coming out and expressing themselves is a common sight but IPL 2020 has taken a very shy and reserved Kings XI Punjab coach and former India batsman Wasim Jaffer out of his shell.
Jaffer in his tweet has congratulated the Rohit Sharma-led team but at the same time also made a cheeky suggestion.
“Congratulations @mipaltan! Now go take a couple of years off, you’ve earned it. Winking face #IPL2020 #IPLfinal #MIvsDC #RohitSharma,” he has tweeted.
Notably, KXIP, whose batting coach is Wasim Jaffer, were in the play-offs race after their 5 consecutive wins after 5 defeats on the trot but they lost their last two league game to go out of the competition. The franchise is yet to win an IPL title.
