Cricket is being conducted in a biologically safe environment amidst the worldwide coronavirus epidemic and the situation is unlikely to improve in the near future. Top cricketers from all over the world have been participating in the IPL 2020 by staying in the bio bubble in UAE since August and when they play for their country’s teams in the upcoming tournaments, then they will have to live in a biologically safe environment.
After the IPL final on 10 November, the Indian team will leave for a long tour of Australia. The Indian team will also be accompanied by top cricketers from Australia like Steve Smith, Pat Cummins, Josh Hazlewood and David Warner who are part of various IPL teams.
Stark said, ‘This is not a long-lasting lifestyle. You are staying in a hotel room and have no contact with the outside world. Many players have not seen their families or their children for a long time, this is so with those who play in the IPL. Among other players, England will travel to South Africa for 6 matches of limited overs within 15 days of the end of the IPL, while the West Indies are scheduled to leave for New Zealand.
Questioning the model of bio bubble, Stark said, ‘This is a difficult situation – we are getting to play cricket so we cannot complain more but looking at the betterment of players, staff and officials, you are in a biologically safe environment How long can you stay? ‘ Earlier, apart from Indian captain Virat Kohli, England captain Eoin Morgan and West Indies captain Jason Holder have also expressed concern about the mental health of the players.
