Players had a good experience
Former South African captain Smith told reporters, "We cannot pronounce a decision in any way." Talked to the players, they felt safe there. He said that the experience of bio bubble in India was very good indeed. At no point were they feeling threatened. But a similar nature is associated with Kovid. ''
The organizers can't be blamed
More than four lakh cases are coming to India every day and more than 4000 people are dying every day. Smith said that risk always remains during the epidemic and the organizers cannot be blamed. He said, "Sometimes you cannot do what you want. Bio bubble can never be said to be completely safe. When there is an outbreak of Kovid in your country, there is always a risk. Unfortunately when it enters the bio bubble it becomes difficult to predict what will happen again. ''
Smith also praised the BCCI's efforts for the safe return of South African players. The South African players returned home on Friday and are still on their quarantine at home. He said, "The way the BCCI took care of the players is exemplary. It was a little easier for our players because our borders were not closed and commercial flights were available for them. ''
