The 13th edition of IPL will be taking the screens on 19th September in UAE. All the teams have reached the UAE to set up their camps while eying some good sessions before IPL starts. With the world dealing with the coronavirus pandemic, it is evident that the teams will have to stay, play, and enjoy within the planetary boundaries of the bio-bubble. More so, to create a conducive environment, all the franchises have come up with innovative ideas. One such franchise is MI that recently gave a virtual tour to their eventful team room.
MI employs a splendid team room
From the latest gaming stations to pool tables, the MI team room is the place to be when you need to relax, chill, and enjoy. Well, Krunal Pandya could not resist after having his eyes over their beautiful team room. In the video, his lips just let out “wow” as soon as he saw the MI team room.

Former Indian bowler and current Director of Cricket Operations for Mumbai Indians, Zaheer Khan, also spoke about the team room.
Zaheer Khan is all praises for the team room
Zaheer Khan in a video posted by MI’s official twitter handle said, “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.”
“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 concluded.
Mumbai Indians have already had their first training session. The MI camp is currently placed in Abu Dhabi. They have been seen preparing at the Abu Dhabi Cricket Academy.
With the IPL start date already out, the IPL governing committee is put out the complete schedule.
