IPL 2020: CSK, KKR & Delhi Capitals to carry 'exclusive' net bowlers to UAE!

IPL2020 is to be held in UAE, which will be a boon in disguise for many unexpected cricketers, who are set to travel to UAE as exclusive net bowlers. Chennai Super Kings (CSK), Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) & Delhi Capital (DC), confirmed that they are all set to carry exclusive net bowlers.  

The list of ‘exclusive’ bowlers mostly comprises of top call U-19 & U-23 players, who will be bowling players like Dhoni, Raina & Rishabh Pant in the practice camps prior to league.  

All these years teams have been using local players but now due to strict bio-security measures for the tournament, all the franchises will have to arrange for quality bowlers during practice sessions.     

While BCCI has limited the squad players to 24, the franchises have not been specified any other Detailed Standard Operations Procedure (SOP). But it could be assumed that most of the eight teams will not avail any local players.  

Teams will be soon leaving for UAE; players have started to gather in their home cities & are under strict safety measures & quarantine. First match of the league will be played between Mumbai Indians & Chennai Super Kings on 19th of September.
