Danny Morrison is on the IPL 2021 commentary team.
Indian Premier League 2021 has been threatened with cancellation since its launch. But, as the number of COVID-19 cases in the country continues to rise, the Cricket Control Council in India has said it has no plans to shut down the tournament, in fact, he said he will make sure everyone and everyone goes home safely.
The news comes after three Aussie players have returned home. Now Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has said all flights from India will be suspended until May 15. This has caused a lot of tension among the cricketers, coaches and broadcasters involved in the league. Former New Zealand stimulator and now famous commentator Danny Morrison spoke about the experience of being in the league.
The retired cricketer, who made a name for himself with his commentary, which is popular for his over-the-top antics, is now settled in Australia with his family on the Sunshine Coast, which is part of Queensland. Former Stimulus Kiwi spoke about the sense of unease in the country with the growing number of COVID cases.
The only time we go out now is in this car convoy bubble: Danny Morrison
Morrison is currently on the IPL broadcast team and lives inside the biosecurity bubble, just like the players who are on the teams. Morrison said that despite the travel break, he wasn’t too worried about getting stuck in India. “You can’t be too stressed out about it, you have to roll around with it and see what really happens,” Morrison said and was quoted by The Age.
He added that the experience was certainly a bit strange with all the COVID-19 cases in the country. He revealed that the only time they got out was when they were in the car convoy bubble. “The only time we go out now is in this car convoy bubble. The only thing you stop for is a leak. It’s quite strange in that you don’t see a lot of people. Rural areas are also sweet. You normally see a lot more people out there, ”added Morrison.
