Adam Zampa feels IPL 2021 should have been hosted in the UAE
Adam Zampa, one of the three Aussies who had withdrawn from IPL 2021 due to personal reasons opened up on the various reasons which made him quit IPL this season.
Adam Zampa feels IPL 2021 should have been hosted in the UAE. Zampa felt that he felt vulnerable in the latest IPL bio bubble compared to many other bio bubbles that he had been a part of due to the extra care required in India due to hygiene issues.
Zampa personally felt that the IPL 2021 should have been held in UAE like last year as the covid situation in India is dire.
Zampa also stressed that since he wasn’t getting a chance to play, he wasn’t finding any motivation and that also added to the stress of staying in the bio bubble.
Finally, when the news about flights from India possibly getting suspended soon broke out, the decision to leave the IPL was taken Zampa stated.
Zampa has no regrets about the monetary loss he suffered by quitting the IPL as he wanted to give priority to his mental health.
“There’s a lot of people coming out and saying games of cricket could be a reprieve for some people but that’s also going to be a personal answer. Someone who has a family member on their death bed probably doesn’t care about the cricket.” Zampa said.
“I feel like for anyone leaving halfway through a tournament, it’s definitely a financial sacrifice. But from my point of view, I wanted to put my mental health first,” said Zampa.
It may be noted that Zampa was one of the three Australian cricketers who quit IPL this year to return home as the news of possible flight suspensions from India started to gain ground. Adam Zampa feels IPL 2021 should have been hosted in the UAE
