Australian cricketers playing in the IPL might get punished when they return home.
India is passing a terrifying era by the second wave of Coronavirus. The Covid 19 infections are increasing at a record rate every day. A massive number of people are getting infected with the deadly virus. India has even overtaken the United States in daily transitions of Coronavirus.
In this situation, several countries have already banned entry from India. This time Australia also took a big step. Anyone entering Australia from India at this time is subject to a fine and, if necessary, to prison.
Cricketers participating in the IPL are most affected by the Australian administration’s decision. This severe punishment can fall on their foreheads after returning to the country after playing the tournament at the end of May.
It is the first time that the return of foreign nationals has been considered a ‘criminal act’ in Australia to prevent coronavirus infection.
The popular IPL 14 cricket tournament is currently underway in India. At least 14 Australian cricketers participated in it. High-profile cricketers like Glenn Maxwell, Steve Smith are playing on different teams participating in the IPL.
There is also a lot of support staff. May 30 is the final match of the tournament. Australian players will then be able to return to the country. India’s responsibility is to repatriate them safely in the Corona climate, and they should ensure it.
However, according to Australia’s new Covid rules, they will have to face severe punishment if they set foot on the country’s soil this time. 37,000 fine or five years in prison.
Health Minister Greg Hunt made the remarks in a separate statement after the Australian administration imposed the ban on Friday.
