The Pandya brothers, i.e. Krunal and Hardik were representing Mumbai Indians, Mayank Agarwal and KL Rahul the new skipper of Kings XI Punjab were seen donning KXIP's jersey, whereas Ishant Sharma was the only representative from Delhi Capitals.
The motive of playing this match was to encourage people to stay home and stay safe at this crunch situation the country is going through now. The message watch revealed at the end of the video. Have a look;
Behind the wickets, it was Kings XI Punjab's skipper KL Rahul who was maneuvering the fielder i.e. Mayank Agarwal. It was a video compilation wherein all the players were participating in this unique match from their homes.
With the regular increase in the positive cases of COVID-19, it seems like we will have to wait for a longer period for the resumption of cricket. It is obvious, once cricket resumes it will be played behind closed doors which is the only way out at this period of time.
