Kane Richardson and Adam Zampa have withdrawn their name from IPL due to personal reasons
Virat-led Royal Challengers Bangalore has been exceptionally well in this season as they won 4 out of their five games and are placed at the 3rd position on the league table.
They defeated the five-time champions Mumbai Indians in the season opener and maintained the same moment for the next three games. They also won the games against Sunrisers Hyderabad, Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals.
However, in their last encounter against Chennai Super Kings, RCB tasted their first loss of the cash-rich contest. Besides, after the completion of the game, two more stars have withdrawn their name ahead of the IPL 2021.
Kane Richardson and Adam Zampa have withdrawn their name for the rest of the league
The Australian bowlers Kane Richardson and Adam Zampa have pulled out their names from IPL 2021 due to some personal reasons. Kane Richardson played only one game in this edition for RCB as he got three overs to bowl and picked up a wicket while conceding 29 runs to his name.
Adam Zampa on the other side didn't play a single game for Bangalore as he missed the first game against Mumbai Indians because of his marriage.
Royal Challengers Bangalore have officially announced this news on Twitter by posting a tweet and wrote "Official Announcement: Adam Zampa & Kane Richardson are returning to Australia for personal reasons and will be unavailable for the remainder of #IPL2021.
Royal Challengers Bangalore management respects their decision and offers them complete support. #PlayBold #WeAreChallengers."

David Hussey has shared his point of view:
The assistant coach of the Kolkata Knight Riders David Hussey has shared his thoughts ahead of the COVID-19 pandemic. "Everyone's sort of a bit nervous about whether they can get back into Australia.
I dare say there'll be a few other Australians a bit nervous about getting back into Australia," David Hussey said to Sydney Morning Herald. Moreover, Rajasthan Royals pacer Andrew Tye also flew back to Australia due to pandemic reasons.
"There was a number of reasons [for leaving], but the main one was with the situation that has started to happen back home in Perth with a lot of cases in hotel quarantine coming out of India.
Now there's been a community case in Perth, governments are trying to restrict numbers coming back in, especially Western Australia," Tye told to SEN Radio before going to the flight.
