Abu Dhabi [UAE], September 12 Morning India: Mumbai Indians’ spinner Jayant Yadav has admitted that living in a bio-secure bubble is indeed hectic, and implementation of these protocols is very necessary if Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 has to go ahead smoothly.
The IPL 2020 will be played from September 19 till November 10 in the UAE across three venues — Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and Sharjah.
“It was a new feeling to have, with time I think that feeling persisted and you just got used to it. As sportspeople, you are used to having a rush of training or going to the field. So I think more than the skill part, I miss the camaraderie of coming to the dressing room or the team bus or talking to someone about cricket,” Jayant Yadav said in a video posted by the official Twitter handle of Mumbai Indians.
“Personally I think we were very lucky that we had a camp in Mumbai and we were acclimatised to the new conditions. The protocols that are there for everyone’s safety are pretty hectic. Every morning, you have to wake up and fill a checker of your temperature and everything. If you have come to a team room, you have to maintain social distance, wear a mask, have your fob by your side so if something unforeseen happens people can track it,” he added.
