IPL players also scared of Corona, three Australian cricketers leave home
The deteriorating situation of Corona in India has also worried the foreign players participating in the Indian Premier League (IPL).
According to the British news agency Reuters, Australian fast bowler Andrew Tie has left the league and returned to Australia after the increase in Corona cases in India.
“I hope that more Australian cricketers will follow in his footsteps and return home from the IPL,” he said.
According to the French news agency AFP, after Andrew Tie, two more Australian cricketers have also left the IPL due to the deteriorating situation of Corona in India. Since then, pressure has mounted on organizers to postpone the event.
Despite three to three and a half lakh cases and nearly three thousand deaths a day in India, the continuation of the IPL is being criticized.
IPL franchise Royal Challengers Bangalore tweeted that “Adam Zampa and Ken Richardson are returning to Australia for personal reasons and will not be available for the rest of the event.”
According to Reuters, Andrew Tie, who was representing Rajasthan Royals in the IPL, left Mumbai for Sydney via Doha on Sunday.
According to Andrew Tie, he has left the IPL due to “bubble life pressures” and the threat of the Australian border closing.
“I thought I should get home early before I get out of the country,” he told Australian radio station SEN.
