The Australian Prime Minister, Scott Morrison has implemented a ‘no flight from India’ policy despite the rising COVID cases in India. As the Indian Premier League (IPL 2021) commences in the subcontinent in a full-fledge, many Australian cricketers are active participants for their respective franchises.
According to the protocols, whoever will breach the policy, would be sentenced to 5 years. The threat includes all the Aussies who are in India at present involved in playing the IPL 2021.
Notably, the government has banned all flights from India and even from the diverted routes of the Middle East. The Aussies, as a consequence, are tucked in the cricket-loving nation with no way out.
The travel plans are now in jeopardy and can even drag them to pay hefty fines of 3 lacs 70 thousand pounds or prison. Not only sixteen cricketers but Ricky Ponting, Damien Wright, David Hussey, Brett Lee and others who are part of the support staff, official members panel, are in problem.

As the players have traveled privately, Scott says no special arrangement has been made for them to bring back to their country.
“They (cricketers) have traveled there privately under those arrangements, this wasn’t part of an Australian tour,” Morrison said according to news agency AFP.
His statement came in the light of Chris Lynn’s request to arrange chartered flights for the Australians.
