StarSports, the official broadcaster of the Indian home T20 league, confirmed her unavailability for the 13th version. Later, Mayanti took to social media to substantiate why she will not be internet hosting any reveals throughout the IPL, which is being held within the UAE. The anchor took to social media to substantiate the information and thanked the official broadcaster for his or her help.
“So I’m going to love watching the IPL @StarSportsIndia all the best to the team @jatinsapru @suhailchandhok @cricketaakash @SanjanaGanesan @ProfDeano @scottbstyris @BrettLee_58 @Sanjog_G and the full gang!!” Mayanti wrote on Twitter.
“So quite a few of you have reached out, and many are speculating. For the past five years, my family at Star Sports has given me the incredible privilege of fronting their most high profile events. In fact, they supported me when I needed them the most. When I was pregnant with my son. They made several adjustments to ensure that I was comfortable hosting till I was 20 weeks/5 months pregnant and would have continued doing so had IPL 2020 gone on as scheduled. Stuart and I were blessed by the birth of our baby boy almost six weeks ago. Life has changed for the better,” Mayanti wrote on Twitter.
So I’m going to like watching the IPL @StarSportsIndia all one of the best to the staff 😁 @jatinsapru @suhailchandhok @cricketaakash @SanjanaGanesan @ProfDeano @scottbstyris @BrettLee_58 @Sanjog_G and the complete gang!! pic.twitter.com/fZVk0NUbTi
