Former Australia captain Steve Smith has said that he will not play in the upcoming Big Bash League in a safe environment and to avoid spending time. Many of Australia’s star cricketers, including Smith, have been living in the bio bubble since August.
Suspense on playing Warner
He has been in a bio-safe environment on the first England tour and since then in the IPL in the UAE since September. “There is no scope, honestly,” Smith told the News Corps. David Warner and Pat Cummins may also be out of the BBL this year. Rajasthan Royals captain Smith in the IPL said that he has taken this decision after seeing the adverse effect of bio bubble which includes staying away from family for a long time.
Players want to live a normal life
He said, ‘Bubbles are just beginning. Don’t know how long it will last. There will be questions regarding selection. If someone takes leave because of being in the bubble for a long time and someone comes to his place and plays well, will he get his place back? ‘ Smith said that after facing the mental difficulties of staying within the bio bubble, the player needs to spend some time in normal life.
