The new Zealand Cricket Board has given a huge relief to the fans, franchises, and owners by allowing their team members to participate in the second phase of the Indian Premier League 2021, which will be played in the United Arab Emirates. Still, the uncertainty of the overseas players looms in phase two of the IPL 2021.
The current champions of the World Test Championship, New Zealand is the most lived team in India, and they are an integral part of the Indian Premier League since its inception in 2008. Now, seven players from the Kiwis team play for a different franchise of this cash-rich league tournament.
The IPL officials are in talks with the England, Australians and South Africans boards, and they request to send their players to play this tournament. Even though the BCCI members are relieved that New Zealand players are available. But still, there is uncertainty with the England, Australians and South African players.
The BCCI official members continue to reach out for the overseas players, and then the star wicket-keeper batsman from England says that he will not travel to UAE because the international schedule will clash with the series that England will play against Bangladesh and Pakistan.
There is no doubt that the West Indies players are available for the second half of the IPL 2021 season, and now their cricket board have also preponed their CPL 2021 fixtures to avoid the clashes with the 31 remaining games of the IPL 2021 season.
The CPL 2021 season will start on 26th August 2021, and it will end on 15th September 2021. All the 33 games of this Caribbean Premier League 2021 will be played at St Kitts and Nevis in Warner’s park.
