Being in India and not playing at Eden is the only con this IPL: Abhishek Nayar

IPL is back to where it belongs - India! Even though the initial stages of the tournament will be played behind closed doors, KKR Assistant Coach Abhishek Nayar felt playing in India itself would be a morale booster for the players.

“As a cricketer whenever you play in India, you grow a lot more. I think it's going to be great for the cricketers to come back to India,” Nayar said.

None of the teams will get to play at their home grounds this year which means the long pending meeting between Eden Gardens and her Knights will have to wait for this year. If there was any con that Nayar could think of in the current scenario, it was their separation from KKR's beloved home ground!

“Coming and playing at Eden Gardens is something that we take pride in and we enjoy. To be honest, not playing at Eden Gardens despite playing India is going to be the only con, if I could say so," he reflected.
