IPL 2021: Not a “good news” for Australian cricketers once they travel back to Australia after IPL 2021, Find Out Why?
As many as 14 Australian cricketers, lot of commentators and coaches are in India at the moment, featuring in the IPL 2021
IPL 2021 continues in its full fledged manner and its almost mid-season in spectacle of franchise cricket. While a surged COVID-19 pandemic torments the soul of administration and health system in India, the diplomatic decisions from other nations, preferably Australia here might cause trouble to their own citizens, who intent to return from India, albeit a new order.
Likes of David Warner, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Pat Cummins, Steve Smith etc mighy be at the end of trouble due to a new order that has been enforced by the health ministry of Australia which states, “Australian residents and citizens who had been in India within last 14 days of the date they plan to return home will be banned from entering Australia as of Monday and those who disobey will face fines and jail”
Australian Health Minister, Greg Hunt, when asked about this temporary emergency determination, said, “The government does not make these decisions lightly. However, it is critical the integrity of the Australian public health and quarantine systems is protected and the number of COVID-19 cases in quarantine facilities is reduced to a manageable level.”
