Daredevils to play in Dubai and EnglandJune 3rd, 2008 - 8:20 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, June 3 (IANS) Close on the heels of Shane Warne’s plans to take Indian Premier League (IPL) champions Rajasthan Royals to his state Victoria, Australia, for friendly matches, Virender Sehwag is taking Delhi Daredevils on a similar jaunt to Dubai and England. “We are in the planning stage, but we’ll most probably be playing some matches in Dubai and England” Sehwag told reporters here Tuesday.
Mumbai Indians and Kings XI Punjab have also chalked out similar plans.
Talking at a promotional event in Delhi, Sehwag said: “It was good fun playing in the IPL. We had no pressure and we all gave our best. When you give your 100 percent the result will take care of itself.”
“We had a very good bonding in our team. It was an honour leading greats like Glenn McGrath, Daniel Vettori and Shoaib Malik,” he added.
Asked if the six-week-long tournament would have any effect on India’s performance in the other two formats of the game, Sehwag said he did not think so.
“Over the course of 44 days we just played 14 matches, and that too for just three hours each. It cannot possibly cause any fatigue.
“On the contrary I believe it gave us good experience playing against the best players from around the world,” said Sehwag.
