KKR took to twitter to share an image from the Opening day of the 2012 IPL series which shows the players standing inside plastic bubbles. “Did someone say (bio-secure) bubble? We’ve been mastering the art at #EdenGardens since our 2012 opening clash!” the Kolkata-based franchise captioned the post. “PS. If you remember this, you’ve been a #KKR fan from a long time,” they added.
KKR along with other franchises will be eligible to enter the bio-secure bubble & start training if the player’s clear medical tests scheduled on day 1, 3 and 6 of their quarantine. At this point all the franchises are in Quarantine in the UAE for the IPL 2020.
KKR squad is taking full care of the health & fitness of their players with special workout routines over group video calls under the guidance of former Olympic sprinter Chris Donaldson. Donaldson has been appointed as the team’s Strength and Conditioning Coach for IPL 2020.
KKR Squad led by Team India’s Batsman Dinesh Karthik has failed to reach playoffs in the previous editions of the tournament following a defeat against eventual winners Mumbai Indians (MI) by a margin of nine wickets, in their final group clash.
The 13th edition of the IPL will start on September 19 & the first opening clash of the tournament will be between CSK & MI.
