The ongoing season of Indian Premier League(IPL) 2021 was suspended due to a number of players testing positive for Covid-19. All the players and support staff members were told to return back home by the BCCI. MS Dhoni shows gratitude towards the foreign players.

Chennai Super Kings(CSK) skipper MS Dhoni has reportedly delayed his return to Ranchi as he wants all his CSK teammates to depart first. The franchises and teams are making their way home. RCB too has made travel arrangements for all their personnel.

But Dhoni, in a virtual meeting with his CSK teammates, reportedly said that since the IPL was happening in India, the foreign players and support staff should be given preference to travel first so that they can reach their homes abroad.

MS Dhoni’s Statement:

In the virtual team meeting, Skipper Dhoni said that- He will be the last person to leave the hotel. He wanted foreigners to leave first, then the Indian players. He will be taking the last flight tomorrow when everyone reaches their home safe and secure, a CSK team member confirmed the news.

Dhoni’s this gesture towards his teammates has won millions of hearts again. In these testing times, the skipper chose to delay his return and stayed back to ensure whether each and every team member reached safely or not.

Travel Plan of Players:

The Englishmen were the first ones out with eight of them landing in London, while the Australians awaited an escape to the Maldives as the now-suspended IPL’s foreign recruits charted their way back home assisted by the BCCI on Wednesday.

England players, Jos Buttler, Jonny Bairstow, Sam Curran, Tom Curran, Sam Billings, Chris Woakes, Moeen Ali, and Jason Roy landed in London to begin a 10-day quarantine before heading to their respective homes.

Few of the remaining players are set to board the flight in the next few hours. The BCCI has also confirmed that the IPL is just postponed and will be completed for sure. The officials are also looking at various options to complete the remaining tournament, as County clubs offered to host remaining matches recently.
