Australian pacer Josh Hazlewood on Monday said that he was “worried” about the COVID-19 flare-up in his IPL group Chennai Super Kings (CSK).
The BCCI has affirmed that 13 work force, including two players, have tried positive for COVID-19 in the CSK camp.
Josh Hazlewood is presently with the Australian group for their restricted overs arrangement in England. The different sides will play three T20Is in Southampton and the same number of ODIs in Manchester between September 4-16.
“We have a WhatsApp bunch with all the data that comes through. It’s clearly a tad of a worry,” Josh Hazlewood told correspondents.
“Preferably, you’d have no cases. They are in isolate now and I believe that wraps up in the following hardly any days. All my attention is on this visit right now and when the IPL comes nearer we’ll consider that,” Josh Hazlewood said.
Alongside Josh Hazlewood, David Warner, Steve Smith, Pat Cummins and Aaron Finch are planned to venture out to the UAE after their visit through England. Hazlewood said there will be conversations with Cricket Australia (CA) if the quantity of positive cases in the IPL increments.
“We haven’t spoken so a lot yet. It’s half a month away until we arrive. I accept those things will come up on the off chance that cases are as yet happening nearer to the date, at that point we’ll connect with CA and have a visit.”
