Chris Lynn demands Chartered flight after IPL is over from CA
On Monday Cricket Australia contacted the Australian players playing in IPL. On this, Chris Lynn has asked Cricket Australia to arrange a chartered flight at the end of IPL to bring back their cricketer. Here is what he told News Corp Media,
“I texted back that as Cricket Australia make 10% of every IPL contract was there a chance we could spend that money this year on a charter flight once the tournament is over?”
“I know there are people worse off than us. But we are going from a really tight bubble and are getting vaccinated next week so hopefully the government will let us get home on a private charter.”
“We are not asking for shortcuts and we signed up knowing the risks. But it would be great to get home as soon as the event is over.”
“Obviously India is in chaos at the moment. But we are at least giving people something to smile about by playing the tournament,” he added.
On this, there is not any comment from Cricket Australia till now. However, there are still some star Australian cricketers like David Warner, Steve Smith, and Pat Cummins playing in IPL.
