IPL 2021: Aussie players to receive NOCs to play in the IPL 2021

Cricket Australia will give NOCs to the Aussie players to take part in the remaining part of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2021) in the UAE in September and October. The clearance came after the Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) announced the postponement of a three-match ODI series between the two nations that was originally planned to be held in India ahead of the T20 World Cup.

Also, the reason behind this move is seen as a preparation for the ICC T20 World Cup in UAE later in the year.

Aussie players to join IPL squads before T20 World Cup

“It will be the second successive season in which players such as David Warner, Steve Smith, Glenn Maxwell, and Marcus Stoinis have missed the opening rounds of Australia’s domestic competitions to participate in the lucrative domestic T20 tournament,” said a report.

The BCCI had confirmed that the English players will be available for the 2021 edition of the IPL in the UAE from September 19.

COVID outbreak paused IPL in Summer

This year’s edition of the IPL was stopped after May 2 due to the second wave of COVID-19 in India. About 40 Australian players, coaches, broadcasters, and support staff had to spend 14 days in the Maldives as Australia shut its international borders, before eventually returning via a charter flight provided by the BCCI.

In July, it was announced by BCCI that the remaining matches of the IPL will be played in UAE from September 19 to October 15. The IPL will end just two days before the men’s T20 World Cup. The world cup also has been relocated from India due to COVID-19 concerns.

Players who will be available in IPL 2021

Seven of the eight players opted out of Australia’s white-ball tours to West Indies and Bangladesh. Warner, Maxwell, Smith, Stoinis, Jhye Richardson, Kane Richardson, and Daniel Sams are now expected to return for the IPL.
