Previously, when Australia announced travel ban on people travelling from India, BCCI had released a statement saying that they will take the responsibility of making sure each and every player reaches back home safe and sound as many players taking part in the Indian Premier League are from other countries.
IPL has been currently suspended until further notice because of the breach in the bio-bubble. Two players from Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), Sandeep Warrier and Varun Chakaravarthy, were the first ones to be infected with the virus, which led to postponing of the KKR vs RCB match. All the other franchises were advised to test all the players and staff members and to self-isolate themselves.
India is one of the worst hit countries in the second wave of COVID-19. There is severe hospital beds, oxygen and vaccine shortage in the country.
