Eleven English Premier League players have returned home, PA reporters have understood.
The competition was permanently canceled Tuesday morning due to the ongoing crisis in the coronavirus, while the lucrative Twenty20 competition has already taken place in the worst case scenario in public health.
More than 400,000 daily illnesses in India and severe oxygen shortages were predicted before the IPL was suspended after three cases out of eight franchises were filed to show that players ’tumors were not safe.
Many England players taking part in the tournament are expected to return home on Tuesday night and when they arrive at the UK coast, they can expect to be offered a 10-day stay at a Government-approved hotel for staying in India as a ‘red country list.
When the organizers tried to set up the IPL as a source of support and entertainment for cricket fans during a difficult time, it was suspended and with just over half of the 60 games planned.
With the same teams, the opportunities closer and the environmental dependence declining, the major league council unanimously agreed to suspend, interest rather than look at participants in a timely and secure manner.
Anxiety was growing among the English team, led by senior management manager Eoin Morgan, although England and the Wales Cricket Board were on hand to provide assistance and advice on a daily basis.
Jos Buttler, Moeen Ali, Jonny Bairstow, Chris Woakes, Dawid Malan, Chris Jordan, Sam Billings, Jason Roy, Tom and Sam Curran were the other 10 English players still in the competition Ben Stokes and Jofra Archer took part in the reduction.
Morgan (Kolkata Knight Rider), Bairstow and Roy (Sunrisers Hyderabad), Moeen Ali and Sam Curran (Chennai Super Kings) were all on a troubled franchise in the camp and earlier on Tuesday the ECB thanked the Indian Control Board for Cricket, who had the responsibility to lead their return.
The spokesman said: “Tuesday (Tuesday) the suspension of the Indian Premier League every morning, we are in close contact with our players and teammates in India as they prepare to return home safely.
“The ECB understands BCCI’s vision to improve the safety and well-being of those affected, and we thank the BCCI for its commitment to doing everything possible to create a safe and secure environment for all participants.
“We still remember the people of India in this difficult time.”
A statement was issued by the IPL just hours before, “BCCI does not want to compromise the safety of players, sponsors and all others involved in the development of the IPL. This idea was taken to protect the safety, health and well-being of all participants.”
“This is a difficult time, especially in India and, despite our best efforts to bring good luck and happiness, it is important that the competition is stopped and everyone returns to their families and loved ones in these difficult times.
“BCCI will do all it can to prepare for the transfer of all safe participants in IPL 2021.”
When or if the IPL will be completed this year is unknown, with the World Calendar’s limited edition offer, and the 20th World Cup in India – which is scheduled for October – is in serious doubt.
The International Cricket Council has already confirmed its plans for the tournament, with the United Arab Emirates taking the lead, and the early IPL finish shows they could be sacked.
