The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) recently announced to organize the remaining 31 matches of the 14th edition of IPL in UAE as the suspended season will be difficult to host in India due to monsoons.
The IPL 2021 is all set to be resumed in September-October after being postponed due to rising number of COVID-19 cases.
However, some franchises can miss their key players in the second leg of the tournament.
Notably, all the cricket teams have a jam-packed international season ahead and several cricket boards are unlikely to make amendments in their schedule for the cash-rich league.
The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) has already hinted towards the non-participation of the English players in the UAE leg of IPL 2021.
In the latest turn of events, the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has also made it clear that it will not be providing the No Objection Certificate (NOC) to its players to participate in the remainder of IPL 2021.
“Shakib has no chance of playing the remaining IPL matches because England will be touring Bangladesh for a series at that time. He won’t be getting NOC.” BCB president Nazmul Hassan was quoted as saying by bdcrictime.”
Shakib Al Hasan and Mustafizur Rahman have IPL contracts with Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals respectively and both had played in the first half of the tournament.
