With IPL 2021 suspended, concern arises for Australian players

Published Date:

Things are getting worse as the coronavirus pandemic continues to rage in India. IPL’s air-tight bio-bubble was breached and several COVID-19 cases were registered on Monday.

The BCCI then decided to suspend the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) indefinitely on Tuesday.

According to reports, four players, one coach, and a number of staff and ground crew members have contracted the deadly virus. They are in isolation according to protocol.

For the time being, the BCCI has agreed to put the 2021 Indian Premier League (IPL) on hold.

After the IPL bubble was shatter on Monday evening, the cricket board’s office bearers met in a huddle.

The tournament suspends as a result of their decision.

Meanwhile, with the IPL suspended, BCCI has reportedly ordered players to go back home.

Now the concern arises for Australian players as their country has banned travelling from India and declared it as illegal.

Australia ban on travel from India

The Australian government, on the other hand, had decided that because the cricketers were playing franchise cricket and were not on national service, the country would not make travel arrangements for them and that they would have to make their own arrangements.

As a result, Zampa and Richardson exploited a loophole in the travel plans and arrived in Melbourne via Doha.

Australia has closed those loopholes and others, including Singapore and Kuala Lumpur, in the hopes of resolving such problems. Australia has now made it illegal for their own cricketers to return home.

The Australian government has introduced an emergency bill that could result in up to 5 years in prison or a fine of up to £37,000 for someone coming from India.

According to reports in the media, 34 Australian cricketers are currently in India. It includes 12 players, 11 coaching staff members, four analysts, two umpires, and five support staff members.

BCCI statement over this

The BCCI, on the other hand, had promised the overseas players that it would be their duty to safely return them to their home countries after the league ended on May 30.

However, after the IPL 14’s suspension, the BCCI reiterates their commitment and states that they would do everything possible to ensure the safe and secure passage of all IPL 2021 participants.
