The 2nd phase of the Indian Premier League is all set to take place in the desert country of UAE. The remaining matches of the league will begin from 19th September and will end on 15th October 2021. Regarding such matters, the BCCI is currently talking about the overseas players and their participation within the league. The IPL 2021 second leg is something that many fans are eagerly waiting for, and each of the eight teams will surely come back stronger.
On 31st July 2021, BCCI has decided to consult with the other foreign cricketing boards regarding the participation of overseas players in IPL 2021 in UAE for the remaining games. Earlier, the English and Welsh Cricket Board announced that all the English players have to make themselves available for overseas cricket.
The officials of BCCI who took part in the meeting have announced that all the efforts are in place to make all the international players available for the IPL. The Indian Premier League started with a bang in April, but the tournament was postponed after the 2nd wave of COVID-19 hit India. There were many players and support staff who were tested positive for the disease. So, the world’s richest cricket board decided to host the IPL 2021 second phase in the UAE in September and released a new IPL 2021 schedule .
Apart from that, the board also discussed Oman hosting the 1st six of the T20 World Cup games. BCCI has taken the responsibility to manage the multi-national competition, and as far as the allocation of the matches is concerned, the officials will be the decision-makers.
BCCI is doing its best to make all the overseas cricketers available for the upcoming remaining games of the IPL 2021 season. Hopefully, they will surely release a statement or announcement to confirm the availability of the foreign players. Stay up to date with the latest sports news & Updates from the world of cricket
