The Aussie paceman, Andrew Tye, who was bought by Rajasthan Royals for INR 1 crore in IPL 2021 Auction, did not play a single match in this year’s IPL. Andrew Tye returned to Australia midway citing ‘personal reasons, amid a surge in the Coronavirus crisis.
Tye was concerned about how are the IPL franchises spending such an insane amount of money on cricket at a time when their country is facing an unprecedented health crisis.
“Looking at it from an Indian point of view, how are these companies and franchises spending so much money, and the government, on the IPL when there are people not being able to get accepted into hospital?” said Tye.
“If sport can continue and be one of those avenues to relieve stress or give a glimmer of hope that the world is OK and there is light at the end of the tunnel, I think it should go ahead,” Tye was quoted as saying by cricket.com.au “But I know that’s not everyone’s feelings and I completely respect everyone’s views from all angles.” Tye added.
