Anand Kripalu set to take up new role as RCB Chairman

‘No crowd, no problem!’

‘No crowd, no problem!’

"He takes over the role of RCB Chairman from Sanjeev Churiwala, who is also the Chief Financial Officer of Diageo India and will be moving to Singapore to take up the position of Finance Director for the APAC".

Reflecting on the RCB initiative, skipper Virat Kohli said that he feels truly proud to don the team's "My Covid Heroes" jersey as a sign of solidarity and gratitude to all those warriors who are working selflessly at this hard time. The players, led by Virat Kohli, however, were largely untouched.

"When we spoke of the bio-bubble for the first time, we discussed about appreciating the things we have and the situation". We have accepted that this is what we need to do. "If we were not being acceptive, then we would be sad or upset about the surroundings". Sadly, not only the IPL will take place outside India this time, but the fans will also not get to see their team in the stadium.

"Of course, it's going to be a unusual feeling playing in empty stadiums".

Earlier this week, in an interview with TNM, "Namma Team RCB", the fanclub of the IPL franchise said that it had recommended to the team management to pick players from Karnataka past year.

The temporary restraining order is up on October 8, at which point a hearing will take place to determine how they will proceed. Katy Perry has actually been approved a short-term restraining order versus a supposed stalker.

The 31-year-old said players have to realise why they started playing the game in the first place and what the bigger picture is. Now you have a chance to bring a lot of joy to people. All the external factors become irrelevant.

"Crowd is a part of your journey when they are watching you".

The skipper maintained there wouldn't be a drop in RCB's intensity level because of empty stands.

Kripalu said he was looking forward to working with Kohli. That can only happen when people come from their own comfort zone and make sure you are safe. "Just to make a tournament of this scale happen in these times.I am sure there are very hard things that are being done on a daily basis which we don't see".
