Australia all-rounder breaks silence, explains why he withdrew from West Indies tour

WI Vs AUS: The corona virus epidemic has made the life of the players very difficult. Players have to stay in the bio bubble most of the time to play and due to this their mental health is getting affected. Australia all-rounder Daniel Sams says he did not participate in the series against West Indies due to his mental health.

Sams is not sad to have pulled out of the series against West Indies as he withdrew due to mental health concerns. Australia’s team is currently on the Windies tour for a five-match T20 series and a three-match ODI series. Sams was among the seven players who withdrew from the West Indies series. Sams said, "I am not sorry for this. I thought about it but in the end I took this decision looking ahead."

Sams has justified his decision. They said, "Family is most important and then my mental health. I took this decision to go home so that I can stay fit for a long time. I would have loved to go there but I think it is the right decision for me and my family."

Sams may have to pay a big price

Sams made his debut against India and he has played four matches so far. He is unsure about how players are adapting to such a long bio bubble. Sams said, "It is something we are not into but we have to get into it and find plans to prepare ourselves for it. This is something that I think about but I have to bubble myself."
