The conversation between the Australian Prime Minister and Micheal Slater on Twitter:

Michael Slater is well known for his swashbuckling abilities and had won the game for his side on many occasions. The 51-year-old has come up with a tweet about the Australian government and wrote "If our Government cared for the safety of Aussies they would allow us to get home.

It’s a disgrace!! Blood on your hands PM. How dare you treat us like this. How about you sort out quarantine system. I had government permission to work on the IPL but I now have government neglect."

In his next tweet, Michael Slater captioned "And for those who think this is a money exercise. Well forget it. This is what I do for a living and I have not made a penny having left early. So please stop the abuse and think of the thousands dying in India each day. It’s called empathy. If only our government had some!"

The Prime Minister of Australia, Scott Morrison was quick enough to respond to his tweet and said "No that is obviously absurd.

We have a temporary pause in place because we have seen a rapid escalation in the infection rate of people who have travelled out of India that is putting enormous pressure on our system and we need to ensure we can bring people safely home from India. It’s a pause to May 15. We’re reviewing it regularly."
