At the same time expecting players to go from this summer in a bubble straight into the IPL, then an England tour and then the BBL and then another tour, etc. is unrealistic. Unsurprisingly, it's becoming increasingly clear that to ask players to live repeatedly in a bio-bubble simply isn't mentally sustainable for them.
