I offered to go over to India and personally vaccinate the whole population at my own expense, but the Government knocked me back. :(

In other words, in order - yes; I do what I can; and no.
You do what you can? So right now you're helping save the million+ kids who die each year from not having clean drinking water? Have you sold your house and moved to central Africa to help those people you really care about?

Or.. is it possible you "care" just enough to sit in your luxury house with a small fortune sitting in the bank... while a million kids die... and post on social media about how much you care...

Oh lookie, someone's trying to pick a fight. Not playing.

But fyi, the basic error you are making here is completely misunderstanding the concept of empathy.

Anyway, I still feel for everyone involved in the situation in India, regardless of their reasons for being there. So that includes our cricketers.

So you have empathy, you just choose not to emphasize with a million children dying due to dirty drinking water? Is it because you don't care about them?

I told you, not playing.
Yes because you can't answer the question as it exposes your hypocrisy :D.

You're just another social media fraud who tells people how much they care about others without ever actually doing anything.

1 like = 1 prayer ?

Once again its the bench players. Money minded campaigners like Warner and others are demonstrating their greed here. Remember few years ago they were fighting against CA over equal pay for men and women cricketers. I wonder why Warner doesn't donate even a 10 percent of his IPL wages to female cricketers?
Why don't you donate your wage to it??

Yeah you really shouldn't be complaining when you're staying in some luxury resort in the Maldives, people aren't going tp have much sympathy for you.


Zero sympathy for Australia's cricketers they wouldn't go to SA who had far less cases due to COVID concerns, but were happy to go to India and play in the IPL.
That was more of a Cricket Australia decision to cancel the SA tour rather than the players, I'm sure at least some of the players wanted to go there.

Might be the only place willing to take people from India at present. We're not the only country banning flights from India.

That's true, sounds like the players may have had no say in that tour of SA as all seemed to have no problem heading to India for IPL.

I'd hardly say all seemed to have no problem given 3 Australians pulled out on the eve of the tournament. Plus only 4 (Cummins, Henriques, Smith, Warner) of the 19 named in the squad for South Africa are at the IPL.

And who the hell is this Amanda Chloe Bailey? Looks like the poor lady is stuck in Covid hotspot India too. She is like Indian supporting version of Dennis. Both of them are equally annoying though.

So would you at that age when you can set yourself up for life. Covid19 isn’t going to harm them either. There’s limited work atm so fair enough too.
Agreed. Dangle that amount of money in front of anyone criticising them for going and I bet that a vast majority would have done the same.

You’re not just playing for this contract but for future ones too. It’s potentially millions of dollars and your life set up for good.

But then don’t whinge about not being let back into the country when you make that decision
