Foreign cricketers stuck in India as IPL postponed abruptly

The abrupt Indian Premier League (IPL) suspension link Tuesday had several top international cricketers scrambling to return home but it is unlikely to be a smooth passage out of India for many of them.

The Indian cricket board (BCCI) has promised "secure and safe passage" for all participants but existing travel restrictions make it a complicated process for many, especially the 40-odd Australian contingent, including 14 players, in India.

Australia has banned travellers from India, including its own citizens, from entering the country until May 15, on the pain of jail and fines.

Cricket Australia (CA) could not have good news for the likes of Steve Smith and David Warner in a statement with the Australian Cricketers' Association (ACA).
