CSK’s Hazlewood concerned about COVID-19 cases
Josh Hazlewood is concerned about a COVID-19 outbreak at his Indian Premier League franchise in the United Arab Emirates, the seamer said on Monday.
Hazlewood is in England for Australia’s limited-overs series, three Twenty20 matches in Southampton followed by three 50-over internationals in Manchester.
After the series he is expected to join the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in UAE, where the 13th edition of the IPL will be held from Sept. 19.
The Indian cricket board said two players and 11 other people tested positive for COVID-19 after arriving in the UAE without identifying them. Local media reported that all of them were from the CSK camp.
“At the franchise, we have a group WhatsApp, with all the information that comes through. It’s obviously a little bit of a concern. You ideally would have no cases,” Hazlewood told reporters on a video conference on Monday. “They are in quarantine now ... All my focus is, obviously, on this tour at the moment. Once the IPL comes closer we will think more about that ... closer to the date we will have a chat with Cricket Australia.”
