BCCI has finally set the schedule for the second part of the IPL 2021 tournament. However, it is still concerned about the availability of foreign players in the tournament. This is because most of them will be engrossed in other tournaments.
England, Afghanistan, and Australian players will be busy in their bilateral series. Even the West Indies cricketers might not be available due to the Caribbean Premier League.
BCCI is planning to start the IPL tournament on the 15th of September. The Indian players will directly move to the bio-bubble from England. They will not quarantine themselves.
However, the other players might need to be quarantined.
Important foreign players who might miss the IPL 2021 tournament
Certain important England players who might miss the IPL 2021 second part are Ben Stokes, Jonny Bairstow, and Jos Buttler.
In addition to this, even New Zealand players might not play in the IPL 2021 second part if they are occupied by the match against Pakistan. Similarly, Australian players will be busy in their match against Sri Lanka and South African players against the Netherlands.
The absence of foreign players might be a major setback for most franchises. BCCI postponed the IPL 2021 match after a lot of cricketers fell sick due to the deadly virus. To save the other players from the virus, BCCI suspended the tournament.
The sick players were given the best of the treatments. The Australian players were moved to the Maldives as Australia had banned the flights from India.
Many players hinted that the breaches in the bio bubble in India were the sole reasons behind the spread of the virus.
Also, the frequent travel to different cities for playing matches was responsible.
