Chennai Super Kings batting coach Michael Hussey, who has recovered from Kovid-19, flew to Australia via Doha on Sunday, a senior official in the IPL franchise said.
Following the RT-PCR test, the former Australian batsman returned negative for COVID-19 on Friday, paving the way for his departure on Sunday morning.
“Yes, Hussey flew to Australia via Doha on a commercial flight. He left early Sunday morning,” CSK CEO KS Vishwanathan told PTI.
Hussey, who was initially tested positive for COVID-19 in the now-suspended Indian Premier League, is expected to return home on Monday.
The 14th edition of the IPL was discontinued on May 4, with four players tested positive for COVID-19 inside its bio-bubble.
Subsequently, Hussey and CSK bowling coach L Balaji, identified with Kovid-19, were brought to Chennai by air ambulance from Delhi.
Hussey aside, other Australians involved in the IPL 2021 edition, including Pat Cummins, Steve Smith, David Warner and Michael Slater, have been detained before circling the Maldives and returning to Australia.
Hussey was unable to join his compatriots in the Maldives after his COVID-19 test results came back positive.
Australia bans flights from India until May 15.
