England's Tom Curran Quits Big Bash League Over Coronavirus Bubble Fatigue
England all-rounder Tom Curran on Monday announced that he will not return to Australia to play in the Big Bash League this year, citing the strains of ongoing biosecurity rules. "It's been a very challenging year and I've been in bubbles since July," Curran said in an open letter to fans of his team, the Sydney Sixers. "I will hopefully be back for many years to come, recharged and ready to go again, but for now I just need some time, normality, see family and be home." Curran had spent two months in a biosecurity bubble in the United Arab Emirates -- which hosted this year's Indian Premier League -- before travelling to his native South Africa for England's ongoing tour.
