IPL 2021 – Chris Lynn asks CA to arrange chartered flight for Australian players once IPL is over

Mumbai Indians opener also says they would be “getting vaccinated next week”

Mumbai Indians opener Chris Lynn has urged Cricket Australia (CA) to arrange for a chartered flight to bring him and his countrymen home on the conclusion of the ongoing IPL.

Lynn was speaking before the latest update from the Australian government; on Tuesday, the Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced a ban on direct flights from India until May 15 and the use of connecting flights (for example via Doha or Dubai) into the country.

“I texted back that as Cricket Australia make 10% of every IPL contract, was there a chance we could spend that money this year on a charter flight once the tournament is over?” Lynn told News Corp media.

While Andrew Tye became the first player from Australia to leave this IPL on Sunday fearing that he may not be able to return home later, his national team-mates Kane Richardson and Adam Zampa also opted out due to “personal reasons”. Earlier, England’s Liam Livingstone had left the tournament citing “bubble fatigue”, before India and Delhi Capitals’ offspinner R Ashwin also chose to sit out to be with his family.
