IPL season 13 is almost upon us and the energy of the sport can be felt in the air. Though the tournament is not going to take place in India but the enthusiasm remains the same, not for the fans only but for the players too. Teams have started their practise sessions at the venue and during these practice sessions, they have realised the importance of being relaxed. All the players have been spotted to be having some light, fun moments with their teammates. This is not only good for the bond amongst the players but for the game too as cricket is a game partnership.
ARCADE GAMES AND FUN AT THE BEACH
Team bonding is extremely important in the game of cricket and from the latest pictures from the UAE, we can figure out that the teams are working upon creating that strong bond. Team rooms hold a special place in the hearts of cricketers. These rooms help players mix up with each other and develop a bond of comradeship. Recently we saw Royal Challengers Bangalore doing just that. The team was seen having fun with arcade games and pool tables in the team room. The Air Hockey Table was also not left untouched and the team made the best of their time playing Air Hockey. Team RCB did not stop at these indoor games but moved to the lawn for the match of Tennis. Surely these games will help them understand each other better and will keep them fit too.
Unlike Royal Challengers Bangalore, Team Kings XI Punjab decided to take it easy and give themselves some time to relax at the private beach of their hotel. The cricketers had their loungers marked out for themselves and all they had to was relax and prepare themselves for the battle ahead.
Mumbai Indians want to take it all in. On one hand, the players have been witnessed taking it lightly at the pool table, while on the other hand, they do not skip their gym sessions. And this is not all! They are also taking care of their mental strength playing Chess with their teammates. Now that is killing two birds with one stone. They surely know how to merge fun and training.
Rajasthan Royals recently experienced a big day of their IPL season 13. No, not because of a game. The team received a gift from the franchise that is going to stay with them for a long time. The gift is a new jersey which the players have been seen flaunting, proudly. After the team received this gift, they headed over to the next thing in the list, Table Tennis while the TV makes some background noise. This seems to be a good mix. Team bonding over some indoor game and their favourite show!
Delhi capitals also received something new, actually, someone new. Kagiso Rabada landed in Dubai all the way from South Africa to join the team. The team must be looking forward to having a good time with the newly arrived teammate.
