The Cricket Australia (CA) and England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) have officially informed the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) that the Australian and England players will be available for the remaining fixtures of the Indian Premier League (IPL) which will now be played in the UAE in September-October. 

The IPL COO Hemang Amin further informed the franchises about the development. 

“We have got a call from the IPL office and have been informed that the boards have no objection to their players' participation. It is now up to the players," Kasi Viswanathan of Chennai Super Kings told Cricbuzz. 

The likes of Moeen Ali, Sam Curran and Jason Behrendorff are a part of the CSK setup in the cash-rich league. 

”Our Australian and English players (Jason Behrendorff, Sam Curran, Moeen Ali) are available," the CEO of the franchise added. 

The Punjab franchise has the Australian players, Riley Meredith, Moises Henriques and Jhye Richardson and a couple of England players, Chris Jordan and Dawid Malan in the ranks. 

Punjab Kings CEO also confirmed that the players have been granted the clearance to participate in the competition. “We've been told of the clearance. Now the team manager will contact the players individually," Punjab Kings CEO said.

Apart from this, Australia opener David Warner has confirmed his availability to play for the SRH which also comprises England's Jonny Bairstow and Jason Roy while former Australian skipper Steve Smith and all-rounder Marcus Stoinis will also feature in the remainder of the IPL for Delhi Capitals. 

The IPL 2021 was suspended on May 4, 2021 after a Covid-19 outbreak within the franchises.
