As we all know, COVID-19 wreaked havoc on India breaking all the previous records. The country is breaking its own record too everyday reporting 3 lakh new cases on daily basis. The death rates are also increasing in proportion to the cases. The virus has made a big impact on IPL 2021 as well. Players are quitting the league as the situations are getting worse in the host country.
As the surge in this second wave is affecting each and every field, foreign countries are in dread of the arrival of infected people coming all the way through India. Some countries are even thinking of ceasing the new entries from our nation.
Smith, Warner may quit IPL 2021 after Zampa, Richardson, Tye
In IPL 2021, Royal Challengers Bangalore’s duo Kane Richardson and Adam Zampa flew back to Australia handing some personal reasons. Also, Rajasthan Royals bowler Andrew Tye dropped further matches of IPL 2021 midway and returned back home in the fear of being locked out of the home country.
After the actions taken by these Australian cricketers, it has been heard that David Warner and Steve Smith too might plan to join the dropouts and fly back to Australia before the situation gets worse and their country ceases the arrivals from India.
News Agency ANI’s report claims “Australian Cricketers including David Warner and Steve Smith are now hoping to be flown home from India before borders shut. Around 30 Australian players, coaches and commentators are ‘keen to get out of India due to the deteriorating situation right across the country,”.
Currently, the Australian government is carrying out the debate to shut down all flights from India looking at the scary spreading of viruses all over the country. In 2020, when almost all the countries got trapped in the horrible spreading of COVID-19, they had closed the doors for international flights. Due to this, many tourists got stuck in foreign countries.
