The moment he was contracted with the virus he was sent to Chennai to recover and proper health and safety protocols were followed to make sure the ace player recover on time.

Australia has imposed a travel ban on passengers from India as the latter country is facing an acute COVID-19 crisis.

When the IPL was suspended on 4th May 2021 due to an increase in the number of cases inside the bio bubble all the Australian players barring hussy traveled to the Maldives where they will quarantine for 14 days before they will fly back to their country.

However, Hussey was still suffering from the virus so the CSK management decided to provide good treatment to the ace player before he can fly back to his homeland.

Informing about how Hussey’s health is at the moment, CSK CEO Kashi Vishwanathan on Friday told that “Hussey has returned with negative RT-PCR results and has recovered well. We haven’t yet decided when he is going to fly back and which route he will take – Maldives or Australia,”.

Meanwhile, India Test keeper Wriddhiman Saha has returned another positive test and remains in isolation with an eye on joining the squad bio-bubble in Mumbai on May 25.

“My quarantine period is still not over. Out of the two tests done, one was negative, and the other one came as positive. Otherwise, I am doing much better. Requesting everyone not to spread misleading stories/information without whole context,” the Sunrisers Hyderabad player posted his statement on Twitter. Both Hussey and Saha had first tested positive during the now suspended IPL.
