The captain of Kolkata Knight Riders, Eoin Morgan is looking forward to play in the IPL. KKR head coach Brendon McCullum welcomed the BCCI’s decision. Cricket fans will be able to watch the IPL after two long years.
The cricketing community is overjoyed after the BCCI’s announcement on Wednesday. Cricketers are acknowledging that the fun of playing in front of spectators in high-voltage tournaments like the IPL is different.
Fans are allowed to watch the match in ground
The 2019 IPL was held in India. Cricket fans were able to watch the tournament for the last time that year. The 2020 IPL was moved from India to the United Arab Emirates due to the additional effects of the coronavirus.
The tournament was held in a stadium without spectators. The IPL started in India in April this year. The matches were played in a stadium without spectators. Meanwhile, the BCCI was forced to postpone the tournament midway due to the spread of the coronavirus.
The second round of the tournament is about to start in the United Arab Emirates. The BCCI has allowed spectators to enter the field as the effects of the corona virus have diminished.
For the time being, a limited number of spectators will be able to enter the stadium in accordance with the Covid 19 rules, according to the BCCI. In this case, the rules of the UAE government will be followed.
What Morgan said about Eden and fans in IPL
Once again, Eoin Morgan is set to play in the KKR jersey in front of a packed audience. According to the Knight captain, he felt the lack of lion roar from the visitors of Eden Gardens in Kolkata.
Morgan also thinks that cricket fans need to get involved in high-voltage tournaments like the IPL. The KKR captain also believes that even if they don’t get the roar like Eden, the spectators of UAE will also cry for them.
McCullam believes KKR still have chances in IPL 2021
KKR head coach Brendon McCullum is thrilled to hear that spectators will enter the field during the IPL in the United Arab Emirates. They have been waiting for this moment for a long time.
McCallum hopes that a large number of KKR fans will also fill the field in UAE. He said that where the Knight Riders are in this year’s IPL and where they want to reach, it requires a lot of focus.
McCallum also believes that cricketers will be charged up and inspired to play better when they reach the ears of the spectators on the field. The head coach of the team has also promised that the KKR cricketers will give their all in the last phase of IPL 2021.
The tough challenge ahead of KKR
Kolkata Knight Riders have disappointed cricket fans in the first round of IPL in India. Eoin Morgan’s side have won just two of their last seven matches. KKR is in the seventh position in the eight-team IPL list.
Brendon McCullum’s side must win at least five of their remaining seven matches in the league to reach the play-offs. Kolkata Knight Riders will play their first match in the second phase of IPL 2021 on September 20.
