New Delhi: Irrespective of what people think about Indian Premier League but Manprit Juneja is certainly enjoying the positives gained for having been with Delhi Daredevils for two seasons as he cracked an unbeaten 178 against New Zealand A in a four-day game here on Wednesday.

"Their premier bowler is Doug Bracewell and having faced him at the Delhi Daredevils nets have really helped me. I have had long net sessions against Bracewell and knew what pace he bowls and his areas of strength," the softspoken Juneja told PTI over phone from Visakhapatnam.

"I would say every tournament has its pluses, whether it's Ranji Trophy which helps you in preparing for longer format or IPL where you get to play best bowlers. The small contributions that I made in IPL (48 vs MI at Wankhede) had helped me evolve as a player," Juneja added.
