Indian Premier League franchise Rajasthan Royals believes the ongoing season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) must continue as planned amid the second wave of Covid-19 in the country because the tournament impacts a lot of people in different ways.

“Our responsibility is not just to entertain, but to give back and help. A lot of work has been going on behind the scenes, and there’s even more to come. Let’s take all precautions, and fight this together”. Rajasthan Royals twitted from their official Twitter handle.

Meanwhile, Rajasthan Royals have approached fellow IPL teams to loan players after the departure of their four foreign players due to various reasons that include injuries, bubble fatigue and COVID-19 fear.

Ben Stokes and Jofra Archer are out of the IPL due to injuries while Liam Livingstone had gone back home citing bubble fatigue. On Sunday, Andrew Tye left for Australia, citing fear due to surge of COVID-19 cases in India, making Royals the worst affected team from player pull-outs.

The  IPL loan window started on Monday and will end with the conclusion of the league stage
Tye, who had not played a game this season, flew back home on Sunday fearing being locked out of his own country with India reporting record COVID-19 infections for the past few days.
IPL rules state that a player who have played less than two matches in the season can be loaned and cannot play against his home franchise.
Royals have two wins from five games and play their next game in Delhi on Thursday.
