Like the UAE last year, no team will get a home advantage after playing a tournament on Indian soil and that is a good thing, according to Kohli. “There is nothing better than playing at the Chinnaswamy Stadium but the good thing is we are playing in India and one of the positive things about last year is that no home ground will benefit this time,” he said.
Kohli said, “Every team is playing at a neutral venue and it shows the strength of the team and that is why the previous IPL was very competitive. With the exception of the last three or four matches, each team was in the running for the playoffs, which is great for the tournament.” “After doing well in such a competitive environment last year, I am confident that we will do well again.”
