Cricket Australia (CA) and the Australian Cricket Association (ACA) remain in close contact with the Australian players currently participating in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021. Australia cricketers Kane Richardson, Adam Zampa (Both RCB) and Andrew Tye (RR) are the Australian cricketers who recently pulled out of the tournament. They wanted to get back home before they got locked out of their own country, given the rising Covid-19 cases, which are going up by over 3 lakh everyday in India at the moment.

"Cricket Australia and the Australian Cricketers' Association remain in regular contact with Australian players, coaches, and commentators taking part in the Indian Premier League, which is being conducted under strict biosecurity protocols," CA official release stated. 

"We will continue to listen to feedback from those on the ground in India and the advice of the Australian Government. Our thoughts are with the people of India at this difficult time," it added.

Wit Tye and Englishman Liam Livingstone pulling out of IPL 2021, RR are now left with exactly four overseas players - Chris Morris, David Miller, Jos Buttler and Mustafizur Rahman - to pick from. They are already without Ben Stokes and Jofra Archer, who are unavailable due to injuries. There were further doubts if the IPL will go on as planned after Delhi Capitals (DC) bowler Ravichandran Ashwin decided to take a break from IPL to focus on helping his family out, but the BCCI has assured that the show will go on.

Given the Covid situation in the country, this edition of the IPL are being played in six venues and none of the teams have the luxury of playing at home. The final will be played on May 30 at the Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad.
