As the IPL bandwagon gets rolling, safety measures are evident everywhere from masks to constant hygiene maintenance.




To ensure that the players are at zero risk, the stadiums in the UAE have begun to resemble a sci-fi movie set.

Workers in full hazmat coveralls, armed with portable disinfection foggers, clean the nets, and all other touch points at the training facilities.
