The countdown has already began for the IPL 2020. After a long wait of 6 months, the much-awaited edition of the Indian Premier League will kickstart within few hours with a mouthwatering clash between two giants Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings. Both the teams will be looking forward to putting their best foot forward and steal the honor.
As the tournament has been shifted to the UAE because of Coronavirus, it will be the first time in IPL history that the league will be played without the presence of fans. However, BCCI has made perfect arrangements to keep the fans happy. Virtual cricket fans will be taking part across the three above mentioned venues to ensure the dazzling atmosphere throughout the league.
As per a report by India Today, for IPL 2020, BCCI have set-up four fan walls in all the three stadiums to maintain the liveliness of the match.
As per the reports, the BCCI has collaborated with the Book My Show, which allows fans to be virtually present during the course of the match. The fans can log in and register for the match. A total of 96 slots have been allotted to each of the two contesting teams.
As the number of fans registering on the app will increase, the lucky ones will get a chance to feature in fan walls present at the venue. However, the selected fans will have to make sure that they are present for the entire duration of the match.
Not just this, a system has been made such that there will be thunderou applauce after all the boundaries and ‘roar’ after every dismissal will be heard. Seems like the fans are going to witness an experience of a lifetime through these special arrangements.
