Mayanti Langer, one of the most recognisable faces of sports broadcasting in India, was not named in the list of anchors for IPL 2020. The fans were left surprised when Star Sports confirmed the development. However, has finally revealed the reason why she was not part of the list of anchors.
Langer took to Twitter to announce that she was not part of the IPL 2020 list of anchors because of her new born. She shared an image of her newborn child with cricketer husband on Twitter and wrote, “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!!”

She also shared a note beside the image. “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/five months pregnant. I would have continued so had IPL 2020 gone on as scheduled. Stuart and I were blessed by the birth of our baby boy six weeks ago. Life has changed for the better,” Langer wrote.
