The recent Twitter banter between de Villiers, Dhoni and du Plessis was a testimony to that fact.

De Villiers will be in action in the opening match of the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League in which defending champions Mumbai Indians take on RCB in Chennai.

Dhoni and du Plessis, will take the field on Saturday when their side CSK takes on last year’s runner-up Delhi Capitals in Mumbai.

This time, IPL is back in India but is different from the previous editions. For the first time, no team will play in their home-ground in the IPL. The tournament is being hosted in six different cities – Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, Chennai, Ahmedabad, Pune – in a caravan format due to the Covid-19 situation.

The first few matches of the IPL are in Chennai and Mumbai.
