The Australian cricketer and other co-workers associated with the tournament did not return home directly due to travel restrictions after the Kovid-19 cases in India and the IPL were postponed, forcing them to spend the first few days in the Maldives. Australia’s 38-member team returned home two weeks ago.
Fast bowler Pat Cummins was also included in these players. He exits the hotel and hugs his pregnant mother Becky Boston. The video of this has been posted by Australia’s famous sports journalist Choli Amanda Bailey on her Twitter.
In addition to Cummins, star batsman Steve Smith, all-rounder Glenn Maxwell and opener David Warner were among the players who met their loved ones eight weeks later.
Most of the Australian players will not be able to spend long with their families as they have been selected in the squad for the series against the West Indies and Bangladesh in July and August.
