What a debacle.

It would be interesting to see how many overseas players would return if they did find a window later this year. It sounds like a few would feel a lot more comfortable in the UAE.
Just add a few more $$$ on their pay cheque if they have doubts will probably tempt them to return.

I suspect it will for some but not others.

I guess it depends on the level of perceived risk, financial position, other earning opportunities etc.

I think the level of perceived risk (actually contracting Covid / getting stuck overseas without a pathway home) is probably a fair bit higher than it was a few months ago.

I wonder how many of those exiting due to “bubble fatigue” earlier in the tournament were using that as a bit of a cover for broader concerns. Could be totally wrong though ... bubble fatigue is a legitimate reason in itself.

Good article on CricInfo outlining how the IPL "bubbles" failed into comparison to the UAE "bubbles".

Surely if they move the T20 World Cup to the UAE they will try and complete the IPL their beforehand.

Reading Cummins comments he certainly didn't realise the borders could be closed if they had to get home quickly , sounds like the 8 English guys flew commercially back to the UK so not sure why the Aussies could not have got on that flight.

Certainly right though about people catching it in a supposedly secure bubble would make it a lot more real/serious in people's thoughts.

I guess the players from CSK , DC , KKR & SRH are in a week long quarantine so can't mix with others from the other 4 teams until they complete that quarantine.

Sounds like their is going to be a charter flight to the Maldives until they can return to Australia , quarantine here for 14 days then head to the WI sometime in June for the ODI/T20 series , then I gather some are off to the UK for the 💯 so will be bubble/quarantine continuously.
