Let us know that IPL chairman Brijesh Patel said on Tuesday that the BCCI will find a way to return foreign players after the league is postponed indefinitely when cases of Kovid-19 infection are exposed in a biologically safe environment. The league was announced to be suspended after Sunrisers Hyderabad wicketkeeper batsman Wriddhiman Saha and Delhi Capitals veteran spinner Amit Mishra were found to be Kovid-19 positive. When asked about how the foreign players will go back, Brijesh told PTI, “We need to send them home and we will find a way to do that.” Foreign players associated with this breathtaking league are returning to their countries. Worried because many countries have imposed travel restrictions due to the deadly epidemic in India. The BCCI has also assured the safe return of foreign players earlier.
