Indian Premier League 2021: Before the start of the second phase of IPL-2021, three players from England withdrew from the league. The names of these players are Jonny Bairstow, David Malan and Chris Woakes. Bairstow is from the Sunrisers Hyderabad camp. In such a situation, the franchise has included explosive batsman Sherfane Rutherford in his place for the UAE leg.Also Read – IPL 2021: RCB’s Devdutt Padikkal wants to maintain the momentum of the first phase
What can be the reason for the withdrawal from IPL: Playing in the IPL will mean that they will be away from home for a long time, as the T20 World Cup will start soon after the end of the IPL, starting with the first match on 19 September. Players arriving in the UAE for the IPL are compulsorily required to undergo a six-day quarantine, a news that may have contributed to their decision.
