Commentary in IPL’s 14th season
Australian commentator Michael Slater, who is commenting on the 14th season of the IPL, has expressed displeasure over Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s ban on his return to Australia from India. He said in a post on social media that he has brought permission from the government to comment on the Indian Premier League being held in India. In such a situation, when the cases of Karona are increasing in India and they want to return, how can the government stop coming. If the government is concerned about the safety of the people of Australia, they should be allowed to return as soon as possible. If there is any kind of anomaly, then only the PM will be responsible for it.
