Cricket Australia (CA) chief Nick Hockley said on Monday that there is no plan to arrange a chartered flight to bring Australian cricketers home from India, which was badly affected by Kovid-19 after the Indian Premier League (IPL) was over. Hockley said Australian players felt safe in the IPL Bio Bubble (Bio-Safe Environment), but their comments came just before the news that two Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) players were positive for the deadly virus. Due to this, Monday’s match between KKR and Royal Challengers Bangalore was postponed.

Australian fast bowler Pat Cummins’s KKR teammates Varun Chakraborty and Sandeep Warrior have come out positive. The BCCI will now host the match after both players were positive and postponed the match in the Corona Test. Mumbai Indians batsman Chris Lynn recently urged Cricket Australia to arrange a chartered flight for Australian cricketers after the IPL ends on May 30.
“There has been no discussion about chartering aircraft yet,” Hockley told Melbourne Radio SEN. We are in touch with the Australian Cricketers’ Association, the players and the BCCI (Indian Cricket Board) to make sure everything is fine and people are fully informed. ‘They said,’ We’re in touch with the players and they feel good. They feel safe in the BCCI bio bubble.
