Amazed by a series of positive cases of Covid-19 – the latest are Amit Mishra from Delhi Capitals and Wicketkeeper-batsman of SunRisers Hyderabad Wriddhiman Saha – BCCI and the IPL Board of Directors decided on Tuesday to postpone the IPL season with immediate effect.
Speaking on Fox’s “The Back Page,” Cummins said he would wait for full clarity on the issue before deciding how and when to fly back.
“I hear a postponement, a cancellation, maybe a move to Mumbai, I’ll wait for a release,” Cummins said, adding, “It seems that (the scenario) changes every few minutes.”
While three Australian cricketers decided to leave hours before their government’s deadline to suspend flights from India, many remained blocked after the postponement of the IPL on Tuesday.
As an emergency exit strategy, many Australian players are exploring the possibility of traveling to Dubai or the Maldives and then drawing up a flight plan to Australia.
The Indian Cricket Board also assured foreign cricketers that: “It will do everything in its power to ensure the safe and secure passage of all participants.”
