Former cricketer Kirti Azad urged BCCI to stop IPL 2021 immediately. This is due to the increasing number of COVID cases in India. Azad earlier thought that everybody in the bio bubble is safe. However, the report of several cricketers falling sick shocked him.
The second wave of COVID-19 has brought a lot of turbulence to the country. Amidst this IPL 2021 was conducted. BCCI made sure that the players were safe in the bio bubble. However, even after the restrictions a lot of players fell sick.
Kirti Azad feels that there was a lapse in the security in the bio bubble
Azad further said that the positive COVID-19 cases from the bio-bubble indicate a security lapse. Not only the players but also the CEO of Chennai Super Kings has been infected with the deadly virus. After the KKR players tested positive for the infection, BCCI decided to postpone their match with RCB.
Azad further said that the symptoms of COVID cannot be seen immediately. It is only on the 7th day that the symptoms are active. He said looking at the condition of the KKR players, it was clear that there has been a security lapse.
Last year BCCI was successful in conducting the IPL tournament. There was no security problem and most of the players were safe. The bio bubble was also strict.
However, this year in India the conditions worsened. Due to the conduction of the tournament in multiple venues across India, there was frequent travel. The travel led might be one of the reasons behind the spread of the virus.
In addition to that, the hotel staff was not quarantined. This might be one of the reasons behind the spread of the infection.
