IPL 2021: Eight England players return home

London/UNI: Eight of the 11 England cricketers, who were part of the now-postponed IPL 2021, returned home on Wednesday.

IPL 2021 was postponed abruptly on Tuesday after at least four Indian players tested positive for coronavirus.

Among the English players who have reached home are Moeen Ali, Sam Curran (both Chennai Super Kings), Tom Curran, Chris Woakes, Sam Billings (all Delhi Capitals), Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow (both Sunrisers Hyderabad) and Jos Buttler (Rajasthan Royals).

"I can confirm that 8 of the 11 England players in India managed to get on a flight to Heathrow last night and have landed this morning. The remaining three - Chris Jordan, David Malan (both Punjab Kings) and Eoin Morgan (Kolkata Knight Riders) should leave India within the next 48 hours," an England cricket board spokesman told Cricbuzz.

With India put on the travel "red list" by the UK in the wake of the raging pandemic here, the cricketers will have to quarantine in government-approved hotels after reaching Britain for 10 days.

The IPL organisers have assured all overseas players a safe passage back home.
