Cummins likely to skip second leg of IPL 2021



Australian right-arm fast bowler Pat Cummins is likely to be unavailable for the second leg of the Indian Premier League.

BCCI officially confirmed that the remainder of this year’s edition of the Indian Premier League will be played in the United Arab Emirates during September and October, later this year. The second half of IPL 2021 and the playoffs including the final will be played in the fixture.

But a bigger challenge for BCCI is bringing in overseas players into the league. Most of the national teams will have their international fixtures during the time and that makes it hard to bring in overseas players.

Already England Cricket Board hinted that England players won’t be participating in the second leg of IPL 2021. ECB director Ashley Gills said that the players will be given rest considering the ICC T20 World Cup and the Ashes.

While England cricketers’ participation is in doubt, Australian players might also skip the league. Confirming this, Australian right-arm fast bowler Pat Cummins is likely to miss the second leg of IPL 2021. According to a report in Sydney Morning Herald, the fast bowler already made it clear that he won’t be participating in the remaining matches of the IPL 2021.

“David Warner and Pat Cummins could be rested from the West Indies tour because of family reasons – others could follow after a draining year in several bubbles – and Cummins, despite a multimillion-dollar IPL contract, has already said he will not return to the T20 tournament this season,” stated the report.
