Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has said that his government will not make any special arrangements for the return of players of their country playing in the IPL in India. Mumbai Indians batsman Chris Lynn had talked about arranging a special aircraft for the return of players after the IPL, after which Prime Minister Morrison’s statement has come out. Australia has banned the arrival of Indian passenger aircraft from today.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison said, “All the cricketers have gone to India to play in the IPL in private. They are not part of any Australian tour.” He also said, “Whatever facilities are available with them there, the players will have to return home using them only.”
What Chris Lynn said
Earlier, Mumbai Indians batsman Chris Lynn urged Cricket Australia (CA) to arrange a special flight for the players to return home after the Indian Premier League (IPL) ended. Let us know that so far, three Australian players Andrew Tye, Kane Richardson and Adam Zampa have withdrawn from the IPL due to the increasing outbreak of Covid-19 in India. Cricket Australia on Monday took information about the health and travel plans of its players playing in the IPL.
“Cricket Australia takes 10 per cent of every IPL contract from us,” Lynn told News Corp Media. That is why I have urged him whether there is any possibility that this year, after the IPL ends, this money should be spent on a special aircraft. So that we can return home easily. “
