R Ashwin decided to take a break from Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 to support his family in the fight against Covid
India’s senior off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin has taken a break from the IPL to help his family battling the Corona epidemic. The 34-year-old player of Delhi Capitals hoped that he would return if the situation goes in the right direction.
He tweeted after winning the match against Sunrisers Hyderabad, “I am taking a break from this season’s IPL from tomorrow. My family is fighting the Corona epidemic and it needs my help during this difficult time. “
He said, “If the situation goes in the right direction, I will come back.” Thank you Delhi Capitals. “
It is believed that a member of his family has been found to be corona positive. The Delhi Capitals supported his decision, saying, “We are with Ashwin in this difficult time.” We wish that his family has the strength to get out of this difficult time. “
Ashwin is the first Indian player to leave the IPL this season due to the Corona epidemic. The IPL is being played in the bio bubble and even if Ashwin returns, he will have to remain in isolation for a few days.
