The 14th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) is going on, amidst the raging Covid-19 pandemic in India. There are a few players who have pulled out of the tournament as well. And now, Australian cricketer Chris Lynn, who is a part of the Mumbai Indians (MI) franchise in the IPL, has stated that Cricket Australia (CA) can arrange a chartered flight for all the Australian players once the tournament is done.
Lynn also said that Cricket Australia makes 10% of every IPL contract, and they could spend the money to ferry the Aussie players safely back to the land of the kangaroos. Adding that he understands that there are a lot of people who are worse off than the cricketers themselves, Lynn opined that the cricketers will be going from an extremely tight bubble.
Lynn further said that the players signed up for the tournament fully knowing all the risks associated with it. He concluded by stating that it would feel great to head home once the IPL is done.
“I texted back that as Cricket Australia makes 10% of every IPL contract was there a chance, we could spend that money this year on a charter flight once the tournament is over?
I know there are people worse off than us. But we are going from a really tight bubble and are getting vaccinated next week so hopefully, the government will let us get home on a private charter. We are not asking for shortcuts and we signed up knowing the risks. But it would be great to get home as soon as the event is over,” said Chris Lynn to News Corp Media.
Chris Lynn has got just a solitary chance in the 2021 edition of the IPL

In the only innings he played, the right-hander scored a blistering 49 at a strike rate of 140.00 at the top of the order.
