IPL 2020 will get underway from September 19 with its final being played on November 10. The lucrative tournament will be played for the second time in UAE. However, the fixtures are still to be confirmed, but it looks like Chennai Super Kings (CSK) will face off against Mumbai Indians in the inaugural contest.
All the matches will be played in bio-secure environment maintaining the safety of players. Commentator Sanjay Manjrekar believes that the television experience for players will be good but it will not matter much for they players as they will still want to win matches even behind closed doors.
“The production team is so smart, they will ensure that the television experience is great. The players will miss the buzz at the ground but again their is so much at stake….Noise is a big part of IPL. Mumbai Indians when they play at Feroz Shah Kotla stadium….players will miss it. But will it result into less intense performance, no way, someone like a Virat Kohli will want to win, crowd or no crowd will not make,” Sanjay Manjrekar told on Star Sports connected.
Kohli is a determined spirit who made his way to become one of the finest cricketers of all-time through sheer self belief and hard-work. He has made run-scoring look easy and has many records to be broken in line
Kohli has often showed his love for the sport through his aggression and hardly gives an inch to his opponents on the field. But off it, Kohli is a completely different personality, he likes to spend time with his family, read books, train consistently and maintain his vegan diet, and to top it all he is not fond of fame or attention.
In normalcy, Kohli would be leading RCB in the IPL 2020 at the moment, but due to the pandemic situation he has resorted to training at home and interacting with sports personalities on social media.
