The fellow countrymen Liam Livingstone pulled out 2 weeks back due to the bio-bubble fatigue. Here is what Eoin Morgan said about the IPL 2021 staged at times of lockdown in the country.

“When we came out of our initial lockdown period, I remember the first sport on TV was probably Australia and New Zealand with rugby union and rugby league,” he said. “Slowly the Bundesliga started and then the Premier League started. That displayed you can play sport while the country is almost in full lockdown.” Morgan told to press.

“We lend our support to everybody who is ill or going through tough times,” he said. “We fight this together, no matter where in the world you are.” KKR captain added.
