The availability of top players of the foreign boards in the IPL 2022 is under doubt as Australian players might not be available entirely for the upcoming edition of the IPL while Sri Lankan players might miss the mid of the cash-rich league.

However, there is some good news for the franchisees as other cricket boards including ECB have given a green signal to their players to participate in the entire season of the IPL 2022.

 

“After the IPL, the ECB is committed to starting the 1st WTC Test Match v New Zealand on 2 June 2022. The player availability for all the ECB players will be through to Sunday, 29 May 2022 (sic),” the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has informed the franchises ahead of the mega-auction, on February 12 and 13.

 

Confirming about receiving a mail from the ECB, a franchise official has revealed to media that England players will be available to feature in the entire season of IPL starting from March 28 to May 29.

 

Whereas Australian players are concerned there are reports of some joining from the beginning & some others around April 11 because of their tour to Pakistan in March-April. Cricket Australia also hints at the importance of players’ participation in the Sheffield Shield, which ends in early April.

 

“The State players whose team does not qualify for the Sheffield Shield Final will be available from March 27,” the BCCI mail notes adding, “State player whose team qualifies for the Sheffield Shield Final will be available from 5, April.” The Sheffield Shield final is from March 31 to April 4.

 

Furthermore, Australia’s test players who don’t qualify to feature in any state team for the Sheffield Shield final will be available from March 26 as the three-Test series between Pakistan and Australia ends on March 25. The players coming from overseas will undergo five-day quarantine.

 

On the other hand, Australian test players whose state team qualifies for the Sheffield Shield Final will not be available to participate in the IPL 2022 till April 5. Australian ODI & T20I Players will reach India to participate in the IPL 2022 on April 6 after the completion of their white-ball series against Pakistan on April 5.

 

Similarly, Sri Lanka players will miss the mid-season of the IPL 2022 from May 11 to 23 because of their two-match Test series against Bangladesh. The Tests are part of the second World Test Championship (WTC) program.

 

Earlier, BCB has informed the BCCI that their all-rounder Shakib-Al-Hasan will miss the IPL 2022 from May 8 to 23 because of the test series against Sri Lanka. However, they have permitted Mustafizur Rahman to feature in the entire IPL 2022. The presence of other Bangladesh players, like Liton Das, Taskin Ahmed, and Shoriful Islam, is subject to their selection for the international matches – against South Africa and Sri Lanka.

 

Overall 220 overseas players will feature in the IPL 2022 & out of the 47 are from Australia, 33 from South Africa, 24 each from England and New Zealand, 23 from Sri Lanka, and five from Bangladesh, among others.
