Defending champions Mumbai Indians have dished out a smart recreation team room to keep their members happy and make it a stress-free environment for all their players.
Mumbai Indians’ Director of Cricket Operations, Zaheer Khan hosted the virtual tour of the franchise’s team room in Abu Dhabi. Taking to their official social media handles, Mumbai Indians shared the video and wrote, “Sit back, relax and take a virtual tour of our team room in Abu Dhabi.”
The video showcased their team room, the gym and the game zone, where players can be seen taking part in recreational activities.
“Well, we always focus the team room for sure because this is where a lot of bonding happens. Players spend a lot of time here, so it’s with a view that it’s going to be three months. It’s going to be a long time, and all the families and players can get together. So this is going to be, pretty much, our zone,” Zaheer Khan said in the video posted on Mumbai Indians’ official Twitter handle.
“One of the biggest missing factors is going to be out ‘Paltan’ cheering us from the stadium. So we just wanted to have a message conveyed to our players as well as our whole squad, the support staff that no matter where you are the ‘Paltan’ is always going to be there. And you can see it with this wall here dedicated purely for our fans and for the players to know that their support in our victories and ups and downs, is always there,” he added.
Mumbai Indians began outdoor training in Abu Dhabi last week. While they started off with an evening session, Rohit Sharma’s men had an afternoon session over the weekend. MI and Kolkata Knight Riders are the only two teams to have camped in Abu Dhabi in the lead up to IPL 2020.
