Alex Carey was eagerly waiting to share the Delhi capitals with elder Ricky Ponting, but the Australian wicketkeeper now feels that he will not have the opportunity to postpone the IPL indefinitely this year.
Alex Carey, who was about to make his IPL debut with the Ponting coach’s Delhi outfit, only time would tell if the T20 World Cup and IPL could be with the coronavirus wreaking havoc around the world this year.
“At this time, it is likely that the IPL may not progress further,” Carey was quoted as saying by Cricket Australia on Friday.
Alex Carey said, “It would be nice to play cricket in Delhi (India) – this was my first time being selected to be a part of the IPL. I am still really positive.
“I’m sure the world will move the way we want it to, and there’s still hope that later in the season the IPL will go ahead and the Men’s T20 World Cup scheduled for Australia, but we’ll wait to see. , “Alex Carey said.
With most countries under lockdown, Carey is in isolation in Adelaide with his wife Eloise and 19-month-old son Louis. He is perfecting his wicketkeeping skills by throwing a golf ball against a wall and catching it on the rebound.
“I see it because I’m healthy and spending a lot of time with my family. It was on the cricket field for years, so it’s good enough to spend time at home,” said the captain of the sub-Australia limited-overs team said.
