In the middle of the fourteenth season of IPL, multiple players tested positive for coronavirus following which the BCCI decided to suspend the event with immediate effect earlier this week. After that, various franchises began arranging for their various members, including players and support staff, to reach their respective destinations safely.
My heart goes out to the people of India, I am sad to leave @mumbaiindians family and come to the end of IPL, not comparable to the suffering that so many people are experiencing right now,” Boult posted on his Instagram account on Sunday.
He continued that India has given him a lot as a cricketer and person and hopes for the improvement of the current health crisis in the country. “India is the place that has given me so much as a cricketer and person. I have always deeply appreciated the support I have received from my Indian fans. It’s a tragic time and I hope things get better soon. I look forward to returning to this beautiful country when I can,” Boult wrote.
He concluded by asking everyone to take care of themselves while thanking MI for making everyone return home safely. “Thank you again to @mumbaiindians for bringing us all home and going above and beyond to ensure health and safety. Please be careful, look after each other and be strong,” he said.
