Star Allrounder Andre Russell: Star all-rounder Andre Russell is ready to return to the Big Bash League. However, they have to follow the rules of Kovid-19. They will have to go through the strict rules of Cricket Australia. It will start from the gate of the stadium itself. Russell will have to use a different gate to enter the Melbourne Cricket Ground. Not only this, they will also have to go by a separate lift.
Russell will have to stay two meters away from fellow players during practice. There will also be a separate dug out for them during the match. If Russell takes 5 wickets in the match, then he will not be able to celebrate with his fellow players. There will be a separate changing room for Russell and if he is interviewed after the match, then he will have to use a separate microphone for that.
This West Indies all-rounder will be able to connect with teammates only when he completes the seven-day quarantine. (This does not include the day of the match.) These steps have been taken by Cricket Australia (CA). CA has taken these steps because of this, so that other players are saved from getting infected with the corona virus. Meanwhile, Melbourne Stars have made a poor start in the BBL. They had to face defeat at the hands of Sydney Sixers by 152 runs. Chasing 214 runs, Melbourne’s team was reduced to 61 runs.
Glenn Maxwell and his team will be hoping that Russell’s return will change the fortunes of the Melbourne Stars. Russell was in strong form in the Abu Dhabi T10 League and will look to continue it in the BBL as well.
