CSK CEO confirms England, Australia stars' availability for IPL

Kasi Viswanathan confirmed that England and Australian players would be available for the remainder of the IPL season, starting September 19

While there was a cloud of doubt over the availability of the English and Australian players for the second half of the 2021 IPL season, the entire scenario has changed dramatically in the recent past. As reported earlier by The Telegraph (UK), the English players are going to be plying their trade in the second half of the postponed season of the tournament. 

Three-time champions Chennai Super Kings’ CEO Kasi Viswanathan confirmed to Cricbuzz that their English and Australian players (Sam Curran, Jason Behrendorff and Moeen Ali) would be available for selection for the tournament. Alongside that, the Cricbuzz reports also cited that the respective boards - England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) and Cricket Australia (CA) - have formally informed their no-objection for their players. 

"We have got a call from the IPL office and have been informed that the boards have no objection to their players' participation. It is now up to the players," Kasi Viswanathan of Chennai Super Kings told Cricbuzz

"Our Australian and English players (Jason Behrendorff, Sam Curran, Moeen Ali) are available," he added.

On the other hand, Punjab Kings’ CEO Satish Menon also confirmed that the franchise have been updated by the board of the clearance. 

"We've been told of the clearance. Now the team manager will contact the players individually," Punjab Kings CEO said, reported Cricbuzz. 

Despite ECB’s managing director, Ashley Giles scathing statements on the players’ availability for the IPL, the postponement of the Three Lions’ tour to Bangladesh has made it possible for the stars to be part of the tournament.
