BCCI to move Australian players to Sri Lanka, Maldives: CA

BCCI, is looking to move Australian players involved in the postponed IPL to Sri Lanka and Maldives before sending them home.

Cricket Australia CEO Nick Hockley has informed yesterday that “BCCI has been working on a range of options and that has now narrowed down to the Maldives and Sri Lanka”.

Australia has placed a strict ban on travel from India, which has left all the players in IPL stranded awaiting any chance to enter through other countries. On the other hand, eight England cricketers, including the likes of Jos Buttler, Jonny Bairstow and Sam Curran, arrived at London’s Heathrow airport on an early-morning flight today.

The other cricketers who returned from India after the IPL postponement are Tom Curran, Sam Billings, Chris Woakes, Moeen Ali and Jason Roy. The remaining three, Dawid Malan, Chris Jordan and Eoin Morgan, will leave India in the next couple of days.

All the arriving players will have to quarantine in government-approved hotels for 10 days, as India has been put on the “red list” by the British government. Morgan (Kolkata Knight Riders), Bairstow and Jason Roy (Sun Risers Hyderabad),Moeen Ali and Sam Curran (Chennai Super Kings) are all part of the franchises that reported positive cases in their camp.
