Staying inside a bio-secure bubble is perhaps the biggest challenge the players participating in IPL 2020 are experiencing which is why franchises are trying everything they can to make everybody's stay as comfortable as possible.
The 13th edition of Indian Premier League will be played in a bio-secure bubble with everybody associated with the tournament undergoing several checks for COVID-19 ever since they left for the United Arab Emirates.
Players and support staff are only shuffling between their team hotels and the cricket stadiums for outdoor practice sessions. Nobody is allowed to break the bubble and travel around due to the virus threat.
On Tuesday (September 8), Mumbai Indians all-rounder Krunal Pandya took fans on a tour of the 'team room', showing the facilities provided by the franchise for the players when they are not on the field.
An indoor basketball shooter, MI Fan wall, TT and pool tables, foot-volley table, a separate section for a music band among other facilities were seen in the MI team room, as highlighted by Krunal in the video.
The 2020 season of IPL will kick-start on September 19. Defending Champions MI will take on Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the tournament opener in Abu Dhabi.
