Maurition told the ‘The Guardian’ newspaper, “They have gone there on a personal journey. It is not part of any Australian tour. They have reached there with their own resources, they are also using those resources. I am sure they will return to Australia as per their arrangement. ”
Three Australian players Andrew Tye, Ken Richardson and Adam Jampa decided to leave the IPL due to the growing health crisis in India. More than three lakh new cases are being registered in India every day and more than 2,000 deaths are happening.
14 of Australia’s players are in the league right now. Apart from them, coaches Ricky Ponting and Simon Katich, commentators Matthew Hayden, Brett Lee, Michael Slater and Lisa Sthalekar are also here.
Mumbai Indians batsman Chris Lynn has urged Cricket Australia (CA) to arrange a special flight for the players to return home after the IPL ends. The IPL league matches will end on May 23 while the final will be played on May 30 in Ahmedabad.
Cricket Australia, however, has decided to wait longer in this matter. Cricket Australia and the Australian Cricketers Association said in a joint statement that they are in touch with their cricketers, coaches and commentators involved in the IPL and are monitoring the situation. He said, “We will keep taking feedback from the people present in India and will give advice to the Australian Government.” Our condolences are with the people of India in this difficult time. ”
