Cummins, a key member of the Kolkata Knight Riders team, said the previous edition, held in the UAE, was incredibly “well run” and organizers took it “a little further” by organizing it at home this year.
On Tuesday, the IPL was “suspended indefinitely” after numerous cases of COVID-19 inside the bio-bubble. Last year, the IPL was first postponed and then moved to the UAE, with India in the hands of the first wave of viruses.
“Last year we managed to keep the IPL in the UAE and it was an incredibly well-run tournament,” Cummins told Foxsports. “This year they tried to take it one step further and find it here in many cities in India. I’m sure looking back, they may have changed a few things.”
His comments were made before the league was postponed on Tuesday. The decision was made after the virus broke the bio-bubble, infecting the batsman of SunRisers Hyderabad Wriddhiman Saha, Delhi Capitals spinner Amit Mishra and Varun Chakravarthy and Sandeep Warrier from KKR.
Chennai Super Kings bowling coach L Balaji was also among the well-known non-playing employees to deliver positive results, and later it turned out that batting coach Michael Hussey also returned positively for COVID-19.
There has been a lot of criticism of the T20 at a time when India was facing such a devastating health crisis.
“These are two different worlds. We are lucky, we are safe, we are comfortable and there are people who are just trying to get basic medical treatment,” said the Australian deputy captain. “The first thing was to find out if playing IPL was the right thing to do and basically everyone said we would be lost without IPL for three or four hours every night. I’m just trying to do my part. India was such a good country for me and the players. cricket. “
With the postponement of the T20 event, Australian IPL players and support staff can fly to the Maldives in an attempt to return home. Last week, the Australian government banned travelers from COVID-ravaged India until 15 May.
