Living in the bio-bubble has proved to be a serious concern among cricketers across countries after the outbreak of COVID-19. Notably, one such news comes in from the Sunrisers Hyderabad camp. Australia all-rounder Mitchell Marsh, who missed majority of the season in IPL 2020, has pulled out of the forthcoming edition. Marsh was bought by the Hyderabad franchise for the base price of Rs 2 crore in IPL 2020 auction.

Marsh pulls out citing bubble fatigue

As reported by Cricbuzz, the all-rounder has expressed inability to spend long time inside the bio-bubble. The Australian all-rounder has informed Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and his IPL franchise Sunrisers Hyderabad of the same.

Mitchell Marsh has played 21 IPL games. He has also played for Deccan Chargers and Pune Warriors in the past.
