Cricket Australia to let players decide on IPL participation

The second half of the IPL 2021 will kick start on September 19 in Dubai with the final slated for October 15

As the BCCI plan their final course of action to conduct the remainder of the Indian Premier League, they have almost solved all the puzzles. After the hurdle for the England and New Zealand players to take part in the league was cleared, Cricket.com can further confirm that most of the Australian players will return to complete their contract.

The United Arab Emirates will co-host the ICC T20 World Cup just after the conclusion of the IPL and that gives the players a good chance to understand the alien UAE conditions ahead of the mega event. A senior franchise official, privy to the development, confirmed this to Cricket.com following talks between BCCI and Cricket Australia.

“Cricket Australia will not stop any players but the chances of few players pulling out can’t be ruled out. New Zealand and England players are returning which is a massive shot in the arm,” the official told Cricket.com.

Earlier, Pat Cummins had opted himself out of the tournament but now that he has had enough rest, if that will change his mind to complete his contract with KKR is left to be seen. 

The likes of Adam Zampa, Kane Richardson, Glenn Maxwell, and Dan Christian are contracted with RCB while David Warner, Mitchell Marsh (Sunrisers Hyderabad), Jhye Richardson, Riley Meredith (Punjab Kings), and Steve Smith (Delhi Capitals) are other important players of their respective franchises.

The second half of the IPL 2021 will kick start on September 19 in Dubai with the final slated for October 15. It must be noted that the ICC T20 World Cup will be held across four venues of UAE and Oman from October 17.
