The IPL is starting a little late this year due to the spread of Corona virus. Due to the spread of Corona virus, the conditions of India are not favorable for playing cricket, so this year the IPL will be held in the UAE. This is not the first time the IPL will be played outside India. Earlier, a season of IPL has been played in South Africa. This year, many changes will be seen in the IPL.
Many changes are being made in the IPL to protect the players. The BCCI is considering what the players' routine will be on the day when the match is not played. It has been decided that players will not be able to go out of the hotel even in free time. This decision has been taken keeping in mind the safety of the players. With this, the BCCI has not yet given permission to take the family members on this tour.
An IPL franchise official said, ‘What the players will do on the day there is no match, it is in their agenda because in this environment they will not be able to go out of the team hotel. This is definitely a matter of discussion, but I would say that this is the biggest challenge this year. When you know that the players will stay in the room for two months, then you have to provide them options.’
The official said, 'Xbox and gaming facilities will dominate. Do not be surprised if players play FIFA more than IPL in two months. Also, football is a game that is very popular among players, besides pool and table tennis. You cannot just tell the players that they cannot go out of the hotel. You have to create such an atmosphere that on the day when there is no match, the players are excited about coming to the team room.’
The official further said, 'Watch a film on Netflix is a good thing. You can do this in your room too. We have to think differently to keep the players busy. It will definitely be a challenge for us, especially when the families of the players are not together. The best thing in UAE is that if your Kovid-19 report comes negative then you do not need to go to Quarantine. Therefore some franchisees have appealed that the players 'wives or girlfriends be allowed to go there for some time.'
