"Come and witness dead bodies": Slater slams Australia PM, for enforcing a travel ban from India

Former Australia cricketer Michael Slater has teared into Australia PM Scott Morrison again on Wednesday. Slater, who was part of the broadcast team for IPL 2021, has suggested Morrison to take his private jet and come witness dead bodies on streets of India. Slater, who was part of the broadcast team for now-postponed IPL 2021, was among the 36 Australians involved in The IPL 2021 after the departure of players Andrew Tye, Adam Zampa and Kane Richardson in between the tournament. The trio had pulled out anticipating ban on Indian flights to Australia.


Slater also extended his wishes to the Indians amid the battle against Covid-19. In another tweet, he wrote, “Above all my love and prayers to every Indian. You have been nothing but amazing to me every time I've been there. Please stay safe.” On Monday, Slater slammed Aussie PM Morrison, saying “Blood on your hands PM. How dare you treat us like this.” His statement came after the Australian government announced a ban on flights from India with the rising Covid-19 cases. The Australian PM reacted to Slater's 'blood on your hand' statement and called it absurd before clearing his stance on jailing the citizens returning from the Asian nation. “No, that’s obviously absurd,” PM Morrison told Nine Network, reacting to Slater's comment. “This is about getting more people home safely, preventing the third wave here in Australia. I think the likelihood of any of that (jail term for those not abiding by the travel ban) occurring is pretty much zero,” the Australian Prime Minister added. CA chief Nick Hockley has revealed that the Australian players will fly to the Maldives or Sri Lanka before leaving for Australia. BCCI will arrange charter flight for the players from either of the two destinations.
