England Players set to get IPL Green-Light as Bangladesh series Postponed

The short white-ball Series between the England Players and Bangladesh players has been confirmed to take part in early next year. The postponement allows for players such as; Sam Curran, Eoin Moran, Liam Livingstone, Moeen Ali, Jofra Archer, Tom Curran, and Jon Bairstow to represent their franchise in the Indian Premier League as the IPL begins in September.

Thus, the postponement will give the England players a comfortable time representing whatever IPL franchise that accommodates them. Also, they will be expected to join other IPL 2021 players.

Furthermore, it is also expected that the England IPL players will charter the same flight as Manchester to Dubai.

Over 50 IPL world champions are in the move to gain the ICC T20 world cup, which they had won in 2010 in the West Indies. However, some players like Liam Livingstone, England’s white-ball team player, pulled out of the IPL because of fatigue from the team bubble in a bid to take care of his mental health.

Ben Stokes, an all-rounder, has also taken time off the India Test Series in order to look after his mental health. Keep it locked for these and more sports news
