Royal Challengers Bangalore spinner Adam Zampa who pulled out of the ongoing season of IPL 2021 due to the rise of COVID-19 cases in India has finally reached his home back in Australia.
Zampa is facing extreme criticism of his statement regarding the IPL bio bubble which was published in the Sydney Morning Herald where the ace spinner said that “Current bio bubble in India is Vulnerable” and it is not safe as compare to the one we had in UAE last year.
Zampa apologized for his statement after he faced extreme criticism on social media and clarified that his statements on the current IPL bio bubble didn’t mean that the virus would get in.
“Thanks to everyone for the messages of concern. Kane and I have both reached Melbourne safe and sound. Firstly, thanks to RCB Management for the way they dealt with the situation. As soon as we made the choice that we felt the right thing to do was to come home, they were fully supportive and did everything they could to help. Their understanding of the situation made the process a lot easier,” said Zampa in an official statement released by RCB.
“Secondly, my comments about the vulnerability of the IPL bubble had nothing to do with feeling like the virus would enter the bubble at any stage. The BCCI and RCB had many precautions to make us feel safe. I believe the tournament is in great hands and will definitely see the finish line. I am understanding the velocity of the situation in India and my thoughts go out to the whole country. It was a personal choice to leave for several reasons,” he added.
The statement given by Zampa is completely different from the one he gave a few days back and the reason why he needs to clarify his decision is based on the fact that he might lose the contract of IPL next year.
