Cricket Australia (CA) and England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) have formally informed the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) that the Australian and England players will be part of remainder of IPL 2021.
“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,” the CEO of the franchise, which has already reached Dubai with 12 players, said. Punjab Kings’ Satish Menon too confirmed receiving the information from the BCCI.
“We’ve been told of the clearance. Now the team manager will contact the players individually,” Punjab Kings CEO said.
