New Delhi. Cricket Australia (CA) has said that they are in touch with their cricketers after three of their players playing in the 14th season of the ongoing IPL in India were out of the league and returned home. Among the 17 cricketers from Australia participating in the IPL-14, Adam Jampa and Ken Richardson are returning home due to personal reasons, leaving the Indian Premier League (IPL) in between. The pair’s franchise Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) confirmed this in a statement on Monday.
“Cricket Australia and the Association of Australian Cricketers are in regular contact with Australian players, coaches and commentators participating in the Indian Premier League, which is being held under strict Bio Secure bubble protocol,” the CA said in a statement.
The CA continued, ‘We will continue to hear feedback about the advice of the Indian and Australian governments. Our thoughts are with the people of India in this difficult time. ‘ Australian fast bowler Andrew Ty left his franchise Rajasthan Royals (RR) for ‘personal reasons’. The matter came to light on Sunday, when fellow RR player Liam Livingstone of England left the IPL a few days ago citing ‘bubble fatigue’.

A samajar agency reported that many Australian players were panicked after the Scott Morrison government (Australian government) reduced the number of passengers arriving from India. India is going through a difficult phase of epidemic due to about 3.5 lakh daily Kovid-19 cases and inadequate medical facilities. On Sunday, 3.54 lakh new cases were seen with over 2800 deaths.
“Everyone is a little nervous about whether they can come back to Australia,” a newspaper report quoted Kolkata Knight Riders mentor and former Australian batsman David Hussey as saying. I would say that there would be some other Australians (other than Tye), who would be a little nervous about coming back to Australia. Everyone is very upset about what is happening here, but they are practical. ‘
Steve Smith (Delhi Capitals), David Warner (Sunrisers Hyderabad), Pat Cummins (Kolkata Knight Riders), Glenn Maxwell (Royal Challengers Bangalore) are among the 17 Australian players participating in the IPL. The departure of Ty, Jampa and Richardson left 13 Australians in the league.
