Dubai: South African star AB de Villiers believes that the biggest challenge for all teams in the Indian Premier League 2020 (IPL 2020) will be to adapt to the hot and humid weather of the UAE. Most matches will be played at night but the conditions will still be challenging. He said, ‘I am not used to this type of weather. It is very hot. I remember the Test match played in Chennai in July in which Veeru scored 300 runs. Even then it was similar heat.

He said, ‘It is equally humid. Even at 10 o’clock at night. It will make a big difference and you will have to save energy for the last 5 overs. De Villiers said that he would miss playing in packed stadiums in India. He said, ‘We all have a habit of playing in packed stadiums. Especially in the Chinnaswamy Stadium, when the audience cheers up, the scene is different. We will definitely miss it. ‘
He said, ‘But I would not say that I am not used to it. I have played a lot of cricket in empty stadiums. In international cricket itself, I have seen the stadiums filled. De Villiers said that every player is happy to return to the field after a long break due to Corona virus epidemic. He said, ‘All are desperate for a good performance. He has brought new energy and will get to see the best cricket.
