The 14th season of the Indian Premier League is going to start again in September. Many foreign players taking part in IPL have refused to play again this season. However, the BCCI has made it clear that the withdrawal of foreign players will not affect the tournament. BCCI vice-president Rajeev Shukla said that the tournament will be held in any case, whether foreign players come or not.
The effect of the withdrawal of foreign players on the IPL teams is believed to be certain. If foreign players like Pat Cummins, Ben Stokes, Butler, Curran and Moeen Ali do not play in IPL 14, then the balance of the teams will deteriorate badly.
The BCCI is eyeing to complete the tournament at any cost. Rajeev Shukla said, “The issue of foreign players has been discussed. But our target is only on completing the IPL. If foreign players come, it will be good. But the tournament will be completed in any case.
BCCI will go ahead with its policy
BCCI has made up its mind to play IPL without foreign players. Rajeev Shukla further said, “Many foreign players are not available. But it is our policy to go ahead with the tournament with what is available and we will follow it strictly.
Let us tell you that the 14th season of the Indian Premier League started from 9 April. But in the first week of May, the tournament was postponed due to several players being found corona positive simultaneously.
However, the 14th season of the IPL is likely to resume in the UAE from September 17. But players from England, New Zealand and Australia will be busy in September due to the international schedule.
