England Cricketers will not play IPL Play-Offs 2021
England cricketers included in the T20 World Cup 2021 Squad will not be able to participate in the IPL play-offs 2021 if their team goes to the finals of the tournament. The English will play a T20 match against Pakistan on October 14 and 15. However, their preparations will start on October 9.
These two T20 matches before the World Cup will add to the confidence of the English. They will play a warm-up match against the United Arab Emirates for the World Cup after the Pakistan series. The English team will leave the IPL camp on October 8 ahead of the national team matches and preparations for the World Cup.
Knockout matches in the second round of the IPL to be held in the United Arab Emirates will start from October 10. The matches of Eliminator and Qualifier 2 will be held on October 11 and 13 respectively and the final will be held on October 15.
At the request of IPL franchisees, the English Cricket Board (ECB) allows their players to play till the end of the IPL. But now they are more likely not to play in the IPL final to prepare for the World Cup.
10 England players will take part in the IPL. With the exception of George Garton, the other nine are in the World Cup squad. England will play their first match in the World Cup against the West Indies on October 23.
Moin Ali and Sam Curran are in Chennai Super Kings. Tom Curran will play for Delhi Capitals and Liam Livingstone will play for Rajasthan Royals. The teams are in a good position in the IPL points list.
Earlier this week, Sunrisers Hyderabad’s Johnny Bairstow and Punjab Kings’ David Malan withdrew from the IPL. The Delhi Capitals may also miss Chris Woakes.
