All the fans of the Indian Premier League might know that one of the sources of entertainment in the pandemic has got canceled after some of the players of the tournament tested positive for Covid-19.
OVERSEAS PLAYERS TO FLY BACK TO THEIR HOMES
As the rest of the matches of the Indian Premier League have been canceled, all the players who were put in bio-secure bubbles, have been sent back to their homes. As some of the overseas players were also there in the tournament, arrangements are also been made for them so that they will be safely sent back to their homes.
As per the official statement of the BCCI, the board is trying to connect with the boards of other countries so that their players will reach their homes safely. The board also added that some players will get to their countries soon.
The chairman of the Indian Premier League, Brijesh Patel has also said that it would be their responsibility too to send all the players safely. He added that all the franchises will make arrangements for their respective players. The management will also help the franchises if they face any situation.
Even though everyone has assured their safe journeys, still the procedures to send them back are very typical and it will not be that easy to send them back safely. There are a lot of restrictions on traveling overseas in India and they will also have to provide their negative RTPCR report of Covid-19, then only they will be allowed to fly back.
Also, even the Australian government has banned all the people to enter the country traveling from India, so things are very much complicated. Recently, a statement came from the Australian Cricket where they said that they fully supported the decision of the Australian Government to not allow anyone in the country coming from India, even if it’s own citizen.
They also said that they have been in the touch with the Indian cricket board too regarding safely sending their players back to Australia. As per the current reports, there are possibilities that the Australian players and staff members might have to fly to the Maldives and stay there before flying back home.
Not only Australia but England and South Africa are also making arrangements to get their players back to their countries who were in India for the IPL. Do you think that IPL matches will again be played?
