Whether it’s AB de Villiers for the Royal Challengers (Bangalore), Kagiso Rabada for the Delhi Capitals (Daily Capitals), Faf du Plessis for the Chennai Super Kings, or Quinton de Kock for the Mumbai Indians, they are all from South Africa. The number one star of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Moreover, due to the increase in the number of coronavirus cases, the air travel of the rainbow countries is restricted. The IPL team is willing to concentrate its efforts to let them all fly to the UAE by charter flights.
One of the franchise officials said when speaking to IANS that this is an informal discussion idea. Once the IPL Council (GC) meets on Sunday, the final idea will be finalized and the franchise will be provided with a road map forward. About to enter the 13th edition of the league
The IPL team gathers and brings South African players to the UAE
“We know that the South African players are a bit stuck. We will call them after the IPL GC meeting on Sunday. We discussed informally and were not limited to one or two franchises. Almost all franchises are in the forefront. These stars are from South Africa, and it makes sense to let them all fly to the UAE on chartered flights, while the franchisees share the costs. The franchise can only proceed after Sunday,” the official explained.
Another official responded to this view, saying that instead of renting charter flights for each franchise, it is better to bring all South African players to the UAE. “Why do we need a plane to bring a player to obtain a franchise, and another person to bring another player to the franchise?”, the official said.
In fact, since the IPL team hopes to stay mainly in Abu Dhabi and Dubai, the IPCI team also plans to send a team from BCCI to the UAE before starting to travel to the country. “No one is keen to live in Sharjah. You have about 15 of the top international hotel chains in Abu Dhabi and Dubai. This is where we want to stay. Someone told us that BCCI hopes to send one before then. Team. We are heading to the UAE.
“Since there are no commercial flights right now, and now I don’t know how to place them, charter flights will be the way forward. But this should be fine, because for many years, what we see in terms of IPL is the way BCCI executes the plan and ensures that the game is held. There will be no small icing.”
