Many players from England are not coming this time to play in the IPL.
Many England players have pulled their hands from the second season of IPL. Fast bowler Chris Woakes is also one of them. Chris Woakes said that he also has tournaments like World Cup and Ashes in front of him. Altogether he could only play any two of these 3 tournaments and had to skip any one. In such a situation, he thought it better to choose T20 World Cup 2021 and Ashes 2021 and left the IPL.Also Read – Happy Birthday Suryakumar Yadav: KKR took 3 years as vice-captain, made a place in T20 WC due to hard struggle

He has so far taken a total of 100 wickets in T20 matches. The Dwarshuis plays in domestic cricket for the New South Wales team of Australia.
