Delhi Capitals’ off-spinner R Ashwin has taken a break from IPL 2021 to support his family in the fight against Covid-19.
Soon after the Delhi Capitals beat Sunrisers Hyderabad in a Super Over thriller, Ashwin tweeted: “I would be taking a break from this year’s IPL from tomorrow. My family and extended family are putting up a fight against #COVID19 and I want to support them during these tough times. I expect to return to play if things go in the right direction.”
Ashwin, who hails from Chennai, was already in the city for the IPL game. Tamil Nadu is currently witnessing a worrying surge in coronavirus cases.
