Karachi: South Africa’s top batsman Faf du Plessis believes that playing cricket in the bio bubble can soon become a big challenge for players and it will not be possible to do so for a long time. Cricketers have to follow strict rules due to the Kovid-19 epidemic.

South Africa’s team is currently in Pakistan for the series of 2 Test matches and 3 T20 Internationals. The first Test will be played in Karachi from 26 January and the second Test will be played from 4 February in Rawalpindi. After this, 3 T20 matches will be played in Lahore from 11 to 14 February.
Du Plessy said, ‘The main priority is to play cricket. Instead of sitting at home, go out and do the work that we like, so it is still the most important thing. But I think a time will come when players will get bored of it (bio bubble).
The star batsman said that when international cricket started after several months of uncertainty due to the epidemic, many players are constantly touring and spending their lives in a bio-safe environment.
He said, ‘If you look at the calendar of the last 8 months, you will see that the players have spent 4 to 5 months in the bio bubble which is too much, some players have not met their family for months which can be challenging. ‘
Duplessis said, ‘I am in good condition right now. I still feel inspired but I can only talk about myself. I do not think it will be possible to live continuously from one bio bubble to another. I have seen and heard many players talking about this. I don’t think it is possible for a long time. ‘
