Mailek Slater reached Maldives
Former Australian cricketer Mylk Slater, who commented on the 14th season of the IPL, has reached the Maldives in India amid growing Corona cases. Former opener Slater has also strongly criticized Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison for not providing repatriation for his players, saying that his PM’s hands are blood-stained.
Wait to go to australia
According to The Australian report, Slater was trying to go home for a week before going to Maldives, but now he will have to wait to go to Australia. The Australian government has banned the return of nearly 9,000 Australians stranded in India. Among them were Australian players and support staff and commentator Slater playing in the IPL.
Removed anger by tweeting
Slater tweeted, “If our government had been concerned about the safety of Australians, they would have allowed us to return home.” This is an insult! The Prime Minister’s hands are stained with blood. How can you treat us like this? What happened to your quarantine system. I got the government’s permission to work in IPL, but now I have to face government neglect.
