The Australian bowler has said he wants to spend time with his family away from the bio-bubble. Hazlewood told cricket.com.au: “ It’s been 10 months of bubble and quarantine in this difficult time. So now I have decided to take a break from cricket for a few days and will be staying at home in Australia for the next two months.
Marsh doesn’t want to be in the bio-bubble either.
Ahead of Josh Hazelwood, Australian star Mitchell Marsh also pulled out of this year’s IPL due to the lack of a bio-bubble.
