Fast bowler Jason Behrendorff told public broadcaster ABC it was “nice to have some fresh air” after leaving quarantine.
“It’s always tough being stuck somewhere, and knowing that we’re able to get home was a relief. And now we’re out of quarantine. I can’t wait to get home and see my family,” he said.
The IPL started in early April, with the decision to go ahead in the face of a deepening health crisis prompting criticism from some observers, while others defended it as a welcome distraction for the embattled Indian public.
Australian government lifted a temporary ban on citizens, who had been in India from traveling home. They spent 10 days in the Maldives.
The Indian cricket board, BCCI, announced Saturday that the tournament, which had completed around half its fixtures, will be played to a conclusion in the United Arab Emirates in September and October.
