Leading Indian off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin and some Australian players withdraw league amid the escalating Covid-19.
Leading Indian off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin and some Australian players withdrawing from the league amid the escalating Covid-19 crisis in India even as the BCCI insisted that the glitzy league will go on.
The 34-year-old Ashwin, competing for Delhi Capitals, decided to take a break saying that his family is currently “putting up a fight against Covid-19” and he wants to support them. He hopes to return to the side “if things go in the right direction”.
However, Andrew Tye (Rajasthan Royals) and the duo of Kane Richardson and Adam Zampa (both Royal Challengers Banglore) withdrew as apprehension set in after a couple of weeks went by smoothly for the league being held in front of empty stands.
