Many Australians have withdrawn their names from the ongoing IPL season citing the rise of COVID-19 cases in India. Australia might announce a lockdown in their country soon and it might keep the players away from their family for a much longer time if they don’t leave for their country soon enough. The remaining Australian players are rumoured to leave the tournament in mid-way as well.
