After the postponement of the Indian Premier League 2021, Mumbai Indians’ fielding coach James Pamment shared his views on being inside the bio-bubble after the postponement of IPL 2021.

On Saturday night, fielding coach Pamment reached Auckland on a private jet. He spoke to stuff.co.NZ. and gave details about the condition and what it was like being in the team’s bio-secure environment during the COVID-19 pandemic in the country.

New Zealand’s James Pamment told stuff. co.NZ, “Some of the senior Indian guys don’t like being restricted and told what to do, but we did feel safe – at no point did we feel the bubble would be compromised, the challenge was the travel.”

BCCI suspended IPL 2021 indefinitely due to the Covid-19 crisis in India followed by many players testing positive. The board then got to the task of sending each and every player and support staff home safe and sound. the players were shifted to the Maldives leaving the mini bio-bubble in New Delhi.

“But we started to get Indian guys in our environment whose families were very sick. There were bereavements as well and we were taking a bit of a cue from those guys who were saying ‘no, we want to carry on and the messages were coming back that this is a good distraction. And it is an Indian league, run by Indian people for the Indian audience in the main and we’re just fortunate to be there to be providing our professional services,”  Pamment added.
