Steve Smith’s team became the Sydney Sixers champions in BBL 2019.
Australia’s Steven Smith has withdrawn his name from the domestic Big Bash League. Smith, captaining the Rajasthan Royals in the IPL, said in an interview to News Corp, “To be honest, there is no chance of playing in the Big Bash.” He said that he has been troubled by being in the bio bubble and wants to spend some days in peace.
Smith said, ‘Bio-bubble has just started. We do not know how long this is going to last. However, there will be questions regarding selection. After being inside the bio-bubble, mental state is also greatly affected. To overcome this, players need to spend a normal life.
Smith is troubled by being in the bio-bubble
Smith said, ‘They are constantly in trouble in the bio-bubble. Several players of the Australian team, including Smith, have been living in the bio-bubble since August. Visiting England first and then living in bio-bubble in IPL. So I want to stay away from it for a few days. ‘
What is bio-bubble?
In simple language, it is an environment in which the living is completely cut off from the outside world. That is, the players participating in the IPL, the support staff, the match official, even the hotel staff and the medical team that conducts the corona test are not allowed to go outside the purview. The person living within its scope cannot come in contact with anyone from outside world.
What is the Big Bash T20 League?
The Big Bash is Australia’s domestic T20 league. It started in 2011. 8 teams play in this league. Like the IPL, many players from India and abroad play in this league. The league was named by the Sydney Sixers last year. Steve Smith also plays from the same franchise.
The Big Bash League starts this year from December 3. However, Australia has to play a home series with India then. Australian fast bowler Pat Cummins and batsman David Warner may also withdraw from the league.
