Covid-19 continues to wreak havoc in the ongoing season of Australia’s Big Bash League (BBL) as more teams have reported about the positive cases in their camp. The concerns are growing over the future of the tournament and the players are also worried about their personal health.
Sydney Sixers franchise is the latest one to report Covid-19 positive cases in their camp. There has been a lot of uncertainty over the future Big Bash League (BBL) 2021-22 after 13 players from the franchise Melbourne Stars including their skipper Glenn Maxwell contracted the virus.
The Sydney Sixers Pacer Jackson Bird has said that there is a bit of anxiety in the camp and he feels that contracting COVID-19 is inevitable.
“There’s a little bit of anxiety,” Bird said to 1170 SEN Breakfast on Friday. “In terms of the schedule but it’s probably more anxiety around COVID. (Everyone is thinking) when are you going to get it? It feels like just a matter of time before the whole squad gets it,” said Bird.
“I hope I’m wrong, but that’s just the feeling I’ve got at the moment. You’ve got to put it out of your mind which can be a little bit hard to do. It’s pretty weird times,” he added.
