New Delhi The rate of corona virus is increasing in India, due to which the number of people killed is also increasing continuously.
About 3.79 lakh new patients have come up in the last 24 hours, while more than 3.5 thousand people have lost their lives. The Indian Premier League (IPL) continues to rage in India these days, but in the meantime players are also worried.
Playing in the 14th season of the IPL, New Zealand cricketers, who will play for New Zealand in the World Test Championship against India in London in June, now want to stay in India and they will leave for England from here itself.
New Zealand have to play a two-match Test series against England from June 2, after which they will play in the final of the World Test Championship against India from June 18.
Along with captain Kane Williamson, fast bowler Kyle Jameson and Trent Boult, Mitchell Santner is also set to join the Test team and all these players are currently playing in the IPL.
New Zealand Cricket Association CEO Heath Mills told Stuff.com NZ, “We’ve got players going to England for that Test series.
They cannot come home very well, nor can they stay in Quarantine for two weeks and then go to England. So they are going to be there until the round-robin finishes or the final series.
Mills said that he is in touch with his players, members and coaching staff present in India. There are currently 10 players from New Zealand and seven members of the coaching staff in the IPL.
He said, “They are worried. But they are fine. So far no one has given any indication that they want to return home. It would be very difficult to return to New Zealand in this difficult time.”
They are worried, but safe in the bio bubble in India. We are confident that the BCCI will take this matter seriously and resolve it. “
