The Indian Premier League (IPL 2020) will be going for the latest thing they have never tried before – they will be using pre-recorded fan chants to boost player’s stamina.
The crowd, being an essential part of the game, is important to boost every player’s performance in the ground. As the league is to be commenced by 19th September behind closed doors, the decision has been taken in order to overcome the scenario.
IPL 2020 to have pre-recorded crowd chants for boosting players
“So, it was decided that while some teams will record the reactions of cheerleaders, which will be played out for every four, six or wicket, other teams have decided to create small videos of fans cheering for them and those will be played out while the cricketers are battling it out in the middle,” the official explained as quoted by Business World.
“While fans will feel they are getting to be a part of the action in their own little way, players will know that they are being closely followed by their fans even though they are not present live in the stadium. There is nothing more special for cricketers than to see fans cheer them on and motivate them,” he stated.
