Grateful To BCCI For Ensuring Our Players Reached Home Safely: CA Interim CEO Nick Hockley


New Delhi: The Cricket Australia interim CEO Nick Hockley on Monday said that he is grateful to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for ensuring quick and safe return of Australian players back home from the Maldives.

Australian players, support staff, commentators, who were involved in the conduct of IPL 2021 reached home on Monday via a BCCI charter flight from the Maldives. The contingent includes top players such as David Warner, Pat Cummins, Steve Smith, Glenn Maxwell, and CSK batting coach Michael Hussey.

Chennai Super Kings (CSK) batting coach Michael Hussey who had tested positive for Covid-19 in India is also expected to reach Australia on Monday via a separate flight.

The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 season was suspended on May 4 due to a rising number of Covid-19 cases and the entire Australian contingent had travelled to the Maldives due to a travel ban from India.
