It has become a thing in cricket and other sports at the begging of 2020. Since then you have witnessed many of our favorites athletes leaving games citing they are suffering from bio bubble fatigue. In recent, Chris Gayle is the biggest star who decided to withdraw from IPL cause of bubble fatigue.

When an athlete goes somewhere to play they stay in a hotel. Back in the normal days, they do many things like wandering around, advertising, conferences, etc. But after Covid-19 attacks us, we need to keep everything safe and under control. In order to keep those players secure, the board ask them to stay in a hotel the whole time. They stay in a place and went to the stadium. That’s all.

Being stuck in the same room, doing the same work every day, lack of activities, and stuff like this put pressure on the players. They face mentally ill and melancholia. Gayle wasn’t the first to skip the tournament for bubble fatigue and will not be the last one to do that. Many other athletes in every sector of sports are facing the same problems.
