New Delhi: The players, especially foreign cricketers, are feeling uneasy after two cases of Kovid-19 (COVID-19) were found in the KKR team. Despite this, the teams believe that IPL 2021 (IPL 2021) should continue despite the increasing risk of this epidemic.
Korana attacked IPL
After the KKR’s Varun Chakravarthy and Sandeep Warrier were found positive, questions are being raised as to how this dangerous virus reached the bio bubble of the world’s largest T20 league. Due to travel restrictions from India, foreign players were already worried about returning home and now their concern has increased.
Challenge for BCCI increased
A franchise official told PTI, ‘Half the tournament has been done. It makes no sense to stop it. With this news (positive matters in KKR team), the work of BCCI (BCCI) has become more challenging.
‘Protocol not violated’
The officer said, ‘We heard that a player was infected because he was taken out of the bio bubble for a scan. So it happened outside the bio bubble. As far as I know, everyone is following the BCCI protocol completely and there is no violation of that.
‘Foreign players are more concerned’
Another official said that if no other team is affected by the virus, then the tournament should continue. The official said, ‘If you want to stop the tournament, how long. The only way is to continue the game by isolating positive cases. The players are definitely more concerned now but their main concern is how they will return home.
Many countries banned Indian travelers
Britain, Australia and New Zealand have banned travelers coming from India and many cricketers from these three countries are playing in the IPL. 3 Australian cricketers returned home before the travel ban was imposed. Another official of one team said, ‘We should leave this decision to the BCCI as to what is best for all of us. Giving them many types of opinions will only lead to confusion.
