The Indian Premier League (IPL 2020) is all set to be commenced by 19th September. Unfortunately, the fans were awaited for the extravaganza to start but they cannot witness the tournament as the spectators. As the league is to go ahead behind closed doors, the management has decided to use pre-recorded chants and fans videos recording to support, enhance, and boost the player and his confidence.
After the COVID-19 hit baldy, the sports scenarios were disturbed across the globe. A few matches of some leagues and bilateral series have been already conducted behind closed doors. The IPL was also suspended indefinitely a few times but now, it is all set to be played under restricted protocols.
IPL 2020 to have pre-recorded crowd chants to enhance players
“So, it was decided that while some teams will record the reactions of cheerleaders, which will be played out for every four, six or wicket, other teams have decided to create small videos of fans cheering for them and those will be played out while the cricketers are battling it out in the middle,” the official explained as quoted by Business World.
“While fans will feel they are getting to be a part of the action in their own little way, players will know that they are being closely followed by their fans even though they are not present live in the stadium. There is nothing more special for cricketers than to see fans cheer them on and motivate them,” he stated.
