Ajit Singh said that this time counseling will be done through a video. There will not be one-to-one. Counseling will be done in groups or on an individual basis. All teams will be called in turn. He said that we have also hired the Sports Integrity Unit. We will monitor the betting and seek help in suspicious cases. Players have been told about how to avoid bookies on social media and WhatsApp.
Former Rajasthan Police DGP Ajit Singh said that till now we have not received any suspicious information. If anything is found, the information in this regard will also be shared with the ICC. Two security licensing officers have been placed with each team.

We have experienced players, can win the title for the fourth time: Watson
Last year's runner-up Chennai Super Kings team batsman Shane Watson has claimed that the team can become the champion this time. The team has both experience and quality. Watson said that being an experienced team means that your players have a greater sense of showing their skills under pressure.
That is why we believe that due to the quality of the players and the experience we have, we have a great chance. He said that the 2018 season was one of my better seasons. I scored a century in the final match. But last year, Chennai was definitely with me in every way. Before the run against Sunrisers Hyderabad, I was dropped in whatever team I have been. But Chennai kept trusting me.
