One of the popular members of the Indian cricket team staff, Nick Webb has decided to step down from the position of trainer citing the long bio bubble restrictions. Nick Webb has been part of the Indian side since the 2019 World cup when Shankar Basu left the side and he has done a tremendous job for the Indian side in tough times.

It is not easy to stay away from the family for a long time and staying inside the bio bubbles making it even difficult. Also, New Zealand has imposed restrictions for anyone entering the country to undergo quarantine for 14 days.

Nick Webb Reveals The Reason Behind The Sudden Move

Nick Webb mentioned that he has already informed BCCI on not extending his contract after the T20 World Cup. He added that it is very tough to take a bold decision like this and he has done the right thing by considering his family first.

“In saying this, I have recently informed the BCCI that I will not be seeking an extension of my contract following the T20 World Cup.

“This has not been an easy decision but ultimately I must put my family first. The current COVID restrictions for New Zealand citizens wanting to enter NZ is the primary reason,” Nick Webb mentioned on Instagram.

Nick Webb Explains The Uncertainty Of Future Being A Major Reason

Nick Webb told that the restrictions that are imposed already have been difficult to handle and 5-8 months without seeing the family is too much to swallow at the moment. He added that he felt “unsustainable” after the T20 World Cup.

“While these restrictions may ease in the future, the uncertainty of this happening moving forward along with potential 5-8 month stints at a time away from my family has made it unsustainable for me past the T20 World Cup,” He added
