The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has confirmed that English players will be available for the 2021 Indian Premier League (IPL) season, which will resume in the UAE on September 19.

The cancellation of the England-Bangladesh series has created an opportunity for English players to use the IPL as a warm-up for the T20 World Cup, which begins immediately after the IPL.

According to sources familiar with the development, the BCCI has received approval from the England and Wales Cricket Board for the participation of English players. This is a perfect example of the BCCI Secretary Jay Shah’s excellent working relationship with the English and Bangladesh cricket boards.

“English players will be available for the IPL’s return to the UAE. The BCCI has given the all-clear. This demonstrates the secretary’s excellent working relationship with not only the ECB, but also the BCB “According to the source.

England and Bangladesh were scheduled to play three One-Day Internationals and three Twenty20 Internationals in September-October. However, Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) chief executive Nizamuddin Chowdhury stated that the BCB is attempting to reschedule the England series following the T20 World Cup.

“Because both teams [Bangladesh and England] are playing a lot of cricket leading up to the T20 World Cup, we are discussing with the ECB whether the series can be hosted following the World Cup,” BCB chief executive Nizamuddin Chowdhury was quoted as saying by Bangladesh daily Prothom Alo, according to ESPNcricinfo. “If the series is postponed until after the T20 World Cup, we must determine a date for its hosting. If neither team has a calendar gap at the same time, we can keep the original dates “he continued.

The BCCI announced the schedule for the remainder of the IPL 2021, which will take place in the UAE, earlier this month. A total of 31 matches will be played over a 27-day period.
