Sussex star Chris Jordan has allayed fears over his safety as he prepares to leave Covid-ravaged India.

Jordan is one of three England internationals still in the country after the IPL was halted by the pandemic.

He was yesterday waiting to leave Ahmedabad, alongside Punjab Kings team-mate Dawid Malan and Eoin Morgan.

Jordan will quarantine in a Government-approved hotel when he arrives at Heathrow.

He can then join up with his Sussex colleagues at Hove.

He said: “These are tricky times. You see the news and you hear things that are happening and it’s a real shame to see what the people in India are going through.


“You monitor the situation on a daily basis and everyone has done everything possible to keep the bubbles secure.

“I would say I’ve felt safe the whole time here. They have so many things put in place and precautions being taken.

“The next step now is getting out safely and I’m sure they’ll see to that as well, but it might take another day or two.

“It was always going to be difficult to continue and I think in the end the right call was made so people can get home to be with their families and look after loved ones.”
