The IPL 2020 is being held in the UAE due to the coronavirus pandemic. However, there has been one more strange incident that has occurred on the cricket field. 

In many games, people are often seen wearing two hats on their heads or even three. During the Kolkata Knight Riders vs Royal Challengers Bangalore clash, Eoin Morgan was seen wearing two caps on his head. Why are players doing this?

It is because of the new ICC regulation which states that players will have to take care of their own stuff due to the coronavirus pandemic.

According to one of the guidelines issued by the ICC, it stated, “On-field protocols – For example, no unnecessary body contact and no handing over items (cap, towels, sunglasses etc.) to umpires or teammates. Each player should be responsible for their own items. Players are not allowed to hand over their items like cap, sunglasses and towels to the umpires. Besides, they cannot ask their teammates to keep these items while they go bowling.”
