Australian opener David Warner on Wednesday said it was “scary” to watch scenes of mass cremation amid the raging Kovid-19 epidemic in India while in the country for the IPL.
After the tournament was suspended last month, Warner and the Australians involved in the IPL went to the Maldives and were banned from entering the home country for travelers in India.
The cricketers were finally able to reunite with their families after a 14-day blockade earlier this week.

“I think it’s really impressive when everyone sees on TV what’s happening in India with Oxygen, ‘” Warner Novas, who played for Sunrisers Hyderabad, said on Fitzgerald and Wipa.
“People on the streets lined up to burn their family numbers. We saw them go on the field twice. Yes, open fields and stuff, you know it’s scary. It’s really frustrating.”
Warner said it would be appropriate to suspend the IPL after multiple cases were registered in the IPL bio-bubble.
“I think I made the right decision from a humanitarian point of view. It was a challenging bubble when we started moving, so the planes were going up and down, but look and they did their part to try it and we know that everyone in India loves cricket.
“It’s a challenge, we have to get out of there as soon as possible,” he said.
