The 14th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) has been suspended with several COVID-19 cases found even inside the bio-secure bubbles. Although the measure has been taken with immediate effect, several overseas cricketers and staff remain in India with the Board planning a way to ensure their safe passage back home. Among others, David Warner is also currently in the country.
With the tournament now postponed, Warner's daughters, who often break the internet with their adorable videos and messages, have shared a heartfelt message for their dad stuck in India. While they hand drew a family portrait depicting mom, dad and the three of them, they added a heartfelt message. "Please daddy come home straight away. We miss you alot and love you. Love from Ivy, Indi and Isla," they wrote underneath their drawing.
Check out the cute sketch here:
The picture of the sketch and the message has been shared by Warner's wife Candice. While the Australian southpaw was the captain of the Sunrisers Hyderabad at the beginning of the season, he was removed from the leadership position midway through the tournament after a poor start. However, the decision was made only till the end of the season and it remains to be seen the Orange Army's decision for the upcoming year.
Australia bans passenger flights from India till May 15
Earlier, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison had announced the ban on passenger flights from India at least May 15 with the record COVID-19 spike in India. He outlined that even the cricketers in IPL won't be given a special privilege. Under these circumstances, it might prove to be a logistical nightmare for the BCCI to conduct a safe passage of Aussie personnel involved in IPL 2021 back to their country.
