Australian cricketer asks for a chartered plane to return home from India
Fearing the severity of the corona virus in India and the thousands of deaths that have gone on, many players have withdrawn from the IPL while many are weighing leaving the league.
According to the French news agency AFP, Andrew Tie, Adam Zampa and Ken Richardson from Australia have already said goodbye to the IPL due to the increase in Corona cases in India.
Now a cricketer Chris Lane has also expressed his desire to return home and requested to send a chartered plane to bring the Australian players back home.
It may be recalled that Australia has canceled flights with India till May 15 due to the increase in the prevalence of corona virus in India.
“When Cricket Australia approached me to inquire about the well-being of the players, I requested a chartered plane to bring them in,” said Chris Lane.
“Cricket Australia receives 10 per cent of the IPL’s revenue. Is it possible that this money will be spent on a chartered plane for the return of players from India this year,” I told Cricket Australia in a reply.
However, Prime Minister Scott Morrison has warned that no special treatment will be given to cricketers.
“He (the cricketers) went to play cricket in person and this tour was not part of the Australian tour,” he said.
