“Doesn’t matter where it goes but obviously it goes to UAE, it’s a great venue to play any format and plus most importantly it is going to change the mood of the nation. It’s not about which franchise win, which player score runs, which guy takes wicket, it’s just changing the mood of the nation. So, this IPL probably will be bigger than rest of the IPL because I think this if for the nation,” Gambhir, who has himself won the IPL title twice as Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) captain, said on Star Sports show ‘Cricket Connected’.
