Cricket South Africa (CSA) have agreed to send the Indian Premier League (IPL) bound players before the conclusion of the One-Day International (ODI) series against Pakistan. The Proteas are scheduled to play three ODIs and four T20Is between April 2 and 16 against Pakistan at home, but the board is willing to let their players head to India after the second ODI on April 4, according to ESPNCricinfo

With the T20 World Cup scheduled to be played later this year in India, it could give the players to get a taste of what’s to come by playing in the high-profile tournament. 

As many as 10 South African players are expected to participate in the IPL this time, including Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, David Miller and Faf du Plessis. The IPL franchises are considering flying in the players in a chartered flight so that they could avoid the seven-day mandatory quarantine and be available for the first match. 

Since they will be moving from one bio-secure bubble to another and travelling in a chartered flight, the players can skip the hard quarantine, join the team’s bubble directly to begin training and get match ready, according to the latest BCCI guidelines. 

IPL 2021 will kick start from April 9, with defending champions Mumbai Indians (MI) taking on Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in Chennai in the season opener.
