“The BCCI would like to thank all the healthcare workers, state associations, players, support staff, franchisees, sponsors, partners, and all the service providers who have tried to their best to organize IPL 2021 even in these extremely difficult times,” IPL said in its official statement.
Many players including Kane Richardson, Adam Zampa, Andrew Tye, and Liam Livingstone have returned to their countries in the mid of the tournament.
