New Delhi: IPL 2021 was halted in the first week of May due to increasing cases due to the second wave of Coronavirus. Now preparations are on to start this big league again. But before the resumption of IPL, a big news has come out.
England and Australia players will not be able to play
England and Australia players will not be able to participate in the IPL. The England Cricket Board (ECB) has already made it clear that he will no longer release his players for the IPL. Actually England players have to take part in many more series during IPL and hence they will not be allowed to play in IPL.
Australian players are also busy
Australian players are also busy for the next few months. The Australian team has to play three to four series before the World Cup to be held in October-November. Australia has to play a five-match T20 series against Bangladesh. Australian players may not be able to play in the IPL, given the extremely tight Kovid protocol.
About 30 players can be out
During the time of IPL 2021, 18 players from Australia and 12 players played for England. Accordingly, if the IPL starts again, then the total of 30 players from both countries will not play. Accordingly, this is a big setback before the start of IPL 2021, because Australia and England players in the IPL are very good matches.
