Last week, the BCCI announced that IPL 2021, which they postponed on the 4th of May due to the uncontrollable second wave of the COVID-19 outbreak, will resume in the UAE in September. With the Australian borders shut and flights from India restricted till the 15th of May, all the contingents travelled to the Maldives. They returned to Australia once it opened and spent another two weeks in quarantine before meeting their families. With a busy international season ahead, their participation in IPL 2021 is certainly in doubt. Notably, former Australian batsman and Chennai Super Kings’ assistant coach Michael Hussey tested positive for COVID-19. Nick Hockley remarked that once they get back together as a group, they all need to discuss the IPL 2021 issue.
