BCCI said on Tuesday that it will do its utmost to ensure that overseas players participating in the 2021 IPL will be able to make their way to their home country, in India after the game ends on the day after the three Australians leave the tournament.
Rajasthan (Rajasthan Royals) and duo Kane Richardson and Adam Zampa (both from Royal challengers Bangalore) withdrew from the game after weeks of smooth going league. People are terrified of the vacancies in the six venues. BCCI CEO Hemang Amin sent a letter to players. Everything ensures that you can reach your destination without any problems. He added: “Don’t worry, the BCCI game won’t end until each of you goes home safely.”
In the past few days, India has registered much more than 3 million cases every day and the medical infrastructure is collapsing. Some players from England and New Zealand also participated in the game, but they have not yet attracted their attention. At the same time, the Australian Cricket Association and the Australian Cricket Association issued a statement saying that they will continue to maintain contact with Indian players, coaches, match officials and commentators and closely monitor the current situation.
Australia on Tuesday suspended all direct passenger flights from India until May 15 with immediate effect because of a “very dramatic” increase in COVID-19 cases. Both agencies responded to developments, saying they would try to “maintain close contact with the Australian government.” And monitor the game until the end of the game on May 30.
As many as 14 Australian players will remain in the game, including stars Steve Smith (DC), David Warner (SunRisers Hyderabad) and Pat Cummins (Kolkata Knight Riders) and coach Rich Ponting (DC) ) And Simon Katic (RCB). Commentators Matthew Hayden, Brett Lee, Michael Slater and Lisa Sthalekar are also Australians currently joining the tournament and trying their best.
