England Refuses to Allow Players to Participate in the IPL

The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECP) has announced that the remaining Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 won't change their schedule for the summer.

According to the sources, just before the start of the ICC World T20 set to be hosted in October in India, the Board of Control for Cricket (BCCI) in India is considering rescheduling the remainder of the IPL season in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) The windows to hold the remaining 31 IPL matches are tight as the Indian Cricket Team will be playing a five-match test series against England by 14 September.

BCCI has requested the ECB to reschedule India's tour of England for the cash-rich league, according to various media reports. Still, ECB Managing Director Ashley Giles has denied these reports by saying that they have not received BCCI's request to reschedule their series, and matches will follow the schedule.

"The matches will be where we are concerned and what we are preparing for. There are all kinds of speculation; I'm not surprised. All of us want our cricket in. But officially, we received nothing, and we cracked on," Giles added.

It is also unclear that England players would be allowed to play in the tournament as they plan to tour Bangladesh and Pakistan once their series with India has ended. Thus, for the duration of the tournament, the 15 English players involved may not be available.

The players will probably relax during the calendar year because of a hectic schedule that will prevent them from playing in the IPL, especially given that England is scheduled to play in the ICC World T20 and Ashes later.
