New Delhi [India], April 28 : As the second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic is rampant across the country, Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Delhi Capitals' head coach Ricky Ponting has spoken about the current situation outside the bubble and how he feels about the players being safest in the bubbles created by the BCCI. "I think cricket, can still bring joy to a lot of people," he said in a video posted by Delhi Capitals on Twitter. Ponting also said it is important to reach and ask everybody in the team about their life and their extended family. "It's really hard for the players outside from India to be in this situation, I feel they should talk more to locals to know and understand the situation more," he said. "We really hope that situation and people outside the bubble remains safe and we hope to continue putting the best show out here," he added. He also urged everyone to stay at home and wear double masks at all times when stepping out.
