Delhi Capitals' new-signing said he is looking forward to new beginnings

Delhi Capitals' new-signing, Ajinkya Rahane asserted that players will not take long before they acclimatise to the Covid-19 protocols within two to three days upon touchdown in the UAE for the IPL.

The BCCI will be organising the 13th edition of the IPL at three venues - Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah - from September 19 to November 10 after it was postponed from March due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The India Test vice-captain, who was traded by Rajasthan Royals to Delhi Capitals, took to social media on Wednesday to share his excitement at the prospect of playing for his new team this season.

"New beginnings for me in the @ipl this year. Looking forward to the season," Rahane said in an Instagram post along with a photo of him batting.

"We will definitely miss our fans. Fans are everything to us. When they come out and support us in the stadiums, it feels really good, inspires us to do well," Rahane said during a TV show.

"Again, you got to think about their health and safety as well. We will miss them in the stadium. We are going to play for them, for our fans. I am sure they will enjoy watching us on TV," he added.

Rahane had been with the Royals since 2011 and was the franchise's most capped player having played 106 matches, six of which were Champions League games. He even captained the Royals in 24 games, winning nine and losing 24.
