The 14th season of the Indian Premier League has been postponed indefinitely. This decision was taken due to increasing cases of corona virus epidemic. The decision was taken after Corona’s entry in the IPL’s bio-secure bubble as well. Now the challenge before the BCCI is how to send the players back. Know what are the rules of return to which country and what do the cricket boards say there?

How will the players return
Australia – not allowed

UK- Only citizens allowed. With 10 days of essential quarantine. And the corona virus will be screened twice during quarantine.

New Zealand Permission to citizens. Only after 14 days of Quarantine.

South Africa Is allowed.

Bangladesh No air travel allowed. The ground border is open but necessary quarantine of 14 days will be required.

UAE (transit point) – No flights from India.

What did the board say
The BCCI will try its best to provide safe passage to all the participants participating in the IPL.

What did cricket australia say
Cricket Australia is in direct talks with the BCCI to bring Australian players, coaches, match officials and commentators safely to Australia. Cricket Australia and the Australian Cricketers Association respect the Australian Government’s decision banning arrival from India until 15 May. We will not demand a waiver.

Kovid cares about no one. It does not leave anyone. Those who are ill will get well soon and hope that everyone else is healthy and safe and reach their home.

Dale Steyn

England and Wales Cricket Board

We are talking exclusively to our players and staff in India. Arrangements have been made to get them back home safely.

Cricket South Africa
Those who want to return
Quarantine will have to remain at home under the guidelines of the World Health Organization. Cricket South Africa and South Africa Cricketers Association (SACA) are in contact with all the players and we are confident about the safety of our players.

Rajiv Shukla
The BCCI has made a good decision by avoiding the IPL for the time being. It will be scheduled later, given Kovid’s predicament. This is very important for the safety of the players and support staff.
