Chris Lynn asks CA to arrange for a charter flight for all Aussie players in IPL 2021

Mumbai Indians opener, Chris Lynn has urged Cricket Australia to arrange for a charter flight to return all the Australian cricketers who are in the middle of the ongoing Indian Premier League that has also been engulfed by raging cases of Corona virus outside the bubble.

Chris Lynn divulged that Cricket Australia makes 10 percent from every Australian contract in IPL and requested the board to take necessary steps by properly using the funds in order to ensure the safety of the cricketers.

Lynn told Newscorp 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?”

The Australian opener is hopeful about the safe return of its players back to Australia after the end of the IPL 2021.

He also added, “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.”

Lynn also mentioned that he is okay with the security protocols in the bubble and has no immediate plans to leave the tournament.

In the midst of so many unfoldings, Australian cricketers, Adam Zampa, Andrew Tye and Kane Richardson pulled out of IPL quoting bio-bubble fatigue. The Australian government has also been mulling over stopping all flights from India which can compound the difficulties for Lynn and company.

Chris Lynn’s numbers in IPL 2021

Lynn has only played one match so far in the tournament and managed to amass 49 runs from the same. Once Quinton De Kock was available for selection, the big Australian has fallen out of favour.

However, De Kock is still to conjure his magical form in the ongoing edition of the tournament and will be desperate to hit his stride at the earliest possible so that Mumbai can also get back to their winning ways.
