A big news has come out related to the Big Bash League (BBL) organized by the Australian Cricket Board, where more than a dozen players and members of the support staff of a team have been found to be corona infected. Players and members of the support staff of BBL team Melbourne Stars are in the grip of corona infection. Seven players of the team and 8 members of the support staff have been found corona infected.
On Thursday, the match was postponed after a member of the support staff got infected and now a corona bomb has exploded inside the squad. After 15 members of a team were found infected in the RTPCR test, now the entire tournament is under threat. At the same time, Melbourne Stars team has to play its next match against Perth Scorchers on Sunday, January 4, but doubts remain on this.
A spokesperson for Big Bash League team Melbourne Stars said that the Covid test of seven players and eight staff members of the team has come positive. On Thursday also a member of the squad was found infected. This is the reason that the Covid test was done for the players and all the support staff members, those who have tested positive have been quarantined for seven days. The decision on the tournament is to be taken by the organisers.
The 2021-22 season of the Big Bash League started on 5 December and its final match is to be played on 28 January, but during the half-season there is a crisis that the tournament should not be postponed. Earlier in 2021, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) had to postpone the 14th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL), as corona cases were reported in some teams. Something similar has happened in BBL as well.
