Some Indian cricketers may not like the IPL bio-bubble ban, but the bubble is completely safe, said five-time champion Mumbai Indians fielding coach James Palmant. He has not named any player. The league was postponed indefinitely on May 4 following cases of corona infection among players in the IPL. “Some Indian players don’t like the ban and the guidelines,” Palmant said. But we felt completely safe. Never once did we feel that there was agreement on safety in the bubble.

Speaking to Stuff dot com New Zealand, the former New Zealand coach from New Zealand said that he and the Mumbai team were starting to panic shortly before the league shut down. “When things started to come up in teams, we were a little bit nervous and scared,” he said.

He said it would have been easier if the matches were only in Mumbai. But as the case grew in Mumbai, the management of fieldworkers and other staff became difficult. He said it was irresponsible to allow 70,000 spectators to enter the Test matches against England in Ahmedabad and then increase the number of cases of coronavirus in Ahmedabad.
