Steve Smith, David Warner, Glenn Maxwell and other to face 5 yr jail: IPL 2021
Australian Prime Minister Morrison has previously said that since the players have gone to India privately for the IPL, they will have to ensure their return on their own.
The decision was based on the proportion of overseas travellers in quarantine in Australia, who have contracted the infection in India, according to Health Minister Greg Hunt.
The restrictions come into effect from May 3 and breaching the ban risks civil penalties and up to five years imprisonment, Health Minister Greg Hunt said in a statement.
The Australian government temporarily barred its citizens from entering the country if they happened to be in India within 14 days of their intended arrival.
14 Australian cricketers are currently playing in IPL 2021 and many Australians like Ricky Ponting, David Hussey, Brett Lee, and Matthew Hayden among others are also part of various IPL franchises’ coaching/support staff and TV commentary team.
The verdict also means that Steve Smith, David Warner, Glen Maxwell, Pat Cummins and other Australians who are part of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL 2021) might be jailed for five years or will have to pay a hefty fine if they return home in the current scenario.
Australia, which has no community transmissions, introduced a temporary suspension of direct flights from India to prevent more virulent COVID-19 variants from entering the country. A report says, Australian cricketers Adam Zampa and Kane Richardson returned to Australia via Doha.
