Finch Against Aussie Cricketers Returning To IPL 2021 schedule 2021

Seven Aussie stars, namely, Glenn Maxwell, Pat Cummins, David Warner, and others, had opted out of the Bangladesh and West Indies tours.

Furthermore, he said that the cricketers who replaced these seven players in those tours will be considered first for the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup.

There were nine players who did not participate in the West Indies tour of Australia. Out of them, Daniel Sams, Marcus Stoinis, Kane Richardson, Jhye Richarson, and Glenn Maxwell have already announced their decision to play in the IPL.

Top cricketers like Liam Livingstone and Adam Zampa have opted out of the tournament, making their teams start a desperate search for replacements before the season restarts.
