The Sydney Morning Herald reported on Monday that many Australian players were nervous after the Scott Morrison government (Australian government) reduced the number of passengers arriving from India. India is going through a difficult phase of epidemic due to about 3.5 lakh daily Kovid-19 cases and inadequate medical facilities. On Sunday, 3.54 lakh new cases were seen with over 2800 deaths.
Quoting Kolkata Knight Riders mentor and former Australian batsman David Hussey, the newspaper report said, everyone is a little nervous about whether they can return to Australia. I would say that there will be some other Australians (other than tie), who will be a little worried about coming back to Australia. Everyone is very upset about what is happening here, but they are also practical.
Steve Smith (Delhi Capitals), David Warner (Sunrisers Hyderabad), Pat Cummins (Kolkata Knight Riders), Glenn Maxwell (Royal Challengers Bangalore) are among the 17 Australian players participating in the IPL. The departure of the tie left 16 Australians in the league.
Josh Hazlewood (Chennai Super Kings), Mitch Marsh (Sunrisers Hyderabad) and Josh Philip (Royal Challengers Bangalore) withdrew from the IPL before the start of the tournament.
