It is to be noted that a lot of cricketers have left the ongoing season of IPL citing personal reasons. While Liam Livingston, Adam Zampa, and Kane Richardson returned home, India's Ravi Ashwin left the IPL bio bubble to join with his family.
As per the reports, Ashwin's kids, wife, and several family members were tested positive for the deadly virus. In order to take care of his family, he decided to leave the IPL.
