New Delhi: Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and Managing Director of Kolkata Knight Riders, who won twice the title in the Indian Premier League (IPL), Vanki Mysore has said that the Kovid-19 (COVID 19) epidemic crisis Remodeling middle players will be the biggest challenge for their support staff. Vanki Mysore said that whenever the 13th edition of the IPL (IPL 13) is there, they will be ready. “It is a difficult time,” Mysore said in a webinar-sporting event organized by the Federation of Indian Commerce and Industry (FICCI): Embracing the Normal. Preparing the players in this difficult period will be the biggest challenge for the support staff.
KKR CEO and Managing Director Vanki Mysore said, “We and the support staff are ready.” There has been a lot of discussion from the support staff about what will happen next. Different conversations are happening with each one. We all will have a tough test, but everyone hopes that they are ready. Asked about the match being played in an empty stadium without spectators, the CEO said, “This will be a big opportunity.” There was an obstacle in the stadium to keep the capacity of the spectators limited. But now the matches will be for the whole world. Now the audience will have a virtual presence and we will have a great opportunity.
The Indian Premier League was scheduled to begin on March 29 but has been postponed indefinitely due to the Kovid-19 epidemic. BCCI is trying a September-October window for the IPL. Mysore said the support staff and backup staff are all ready. There was a lot of discussion from the support staff that we have to do according to the team. Mysore said, there are quite a few ‘one on one’ discussions to prepare the players, while there are some limitations like we are not allowed to go to the gym. Although quite excited. We will all be tested. Even when the games are restored, they will be in an empty stadium without spectators. When asked about this from Mysore, he said, this will be a big opportunity for the stakeholders. There used to be an obstacle to keep the capacity of spectators in the stadium but now the matches will be for the whole world. Now fans will have a ‘virtual’ presence. There will be an interesting opportunity in front of us.
