Mumbai:  India's star batsman and captain of the Kings XI Punjab, Yuvraj Singh, reckons the second season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) will emerge even 'bigger" than the inaugural season, despite the fact that the organisers shifted the event to South Africa due to a political fallout.

“It"s going to India's star batsman and captain of the Kings XI Punjab, Yuvraj Singh, reckons the second season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) will emerge even 'bigger" than the inaugural season, despite the fact that the organisers shifted the event to South Africa due to a political fallout.be bigger than last year for sure. The Indian fan base in South Africa is huge and we are expecting them to turn up and support their city teams," Yuvraj was quoted as saying by Times of India on Friday.

“I am sure that the Punjabi community settled in South Africa will support us. Similarly, those originally from Mumbai would certainly come for Mumbai"s matches. Some Indian fans will also fly down to South Africa."

Yuvraj"s side lost to Chennai Super Kings in the semi-final of the inaugural event despite a top-notch performance in the league stages.

“We reached IPL"s semi-final last year, but hope to perform better this year. I am keen to test my skills with the bat and enjoy the Twenty20 format again. Individual feats look nice only if your team is doing well, so it"s important to score consistently to win matches," the graceful southpaw said.
