‘I Would Have Liked To Play IPL For This Team’, Sunil Gavaskar Names His Desired Franchise

Sunil Gavaskar is considered one of the best batters in cricket history. However, the legend did not have the opportunity to play T20 cricket as he retired before the shortest format of the game came to the fore. Despite not playing the format the 73-year-old has been involved in the game as a commentator and expert and he used to give his selfless opinion on all the cricketing events across the globe.

This year Indian Premier League has completed its 16th anniversary and Sunil Gavaskar disclosed his preferences for the teams he would have liked to play for in the tournament. He expressed his desire to have played under the captaincy of MS Dhoni and shared the dressing room with Chennai Super Kings.

While speaking to Star Sports, Gavaskar said,”Mumbai Indians, who else? If not, then I would like to play for Chennai Super Kings. Chennai Super Kings for two reasons, firstly, the Chennai owners are passionate about cricket; they have done so much for the sport. Srinivasan sir has done a lot for cricket.”

He further added,”And the second big reason would be to sit in the dressing room with MS Dhoni and see how he captains the team. Is he as calm and composed in the dressing room as he is on the field? Does he lose his cool when someone has dropped a catch or somebody didn’t back up a fielder? That’s what I would like to know.”

Sunil Gavaskar also gave his opinion on the players he would have enjoyed watching in the IPL. He mentioned several of his former teammates, and even suggested that their technique of playing would have been suitable for the T20 format.

“Look, a batsman I would like to see would be Sandeep Patil; there is only one all-rounder who I would choose — Kapil Dev; for the bowler, I would like to see BS Chandrashekhar play in the T20 format because his bowling action was not suited only for test cricket but one-day cricket and T20 cricket would also be easy for him,” Gavaskar said.
