Several players, including Australian opener David Warner, will play in the remaining matches of the IPL 2021 in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) from September 19. According to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and the franchise, there is no restriction by Cricket Australia (CA) for Australian players to participate in the remaining matches of the IPL. Warner posted a photo on his Instagram, in which he was seen wearing the IPL franchise Sun Raisers Hyderabad jersey and waving his bat to the air. Warner wrote in the caption with this photo, ‘I’ll be back.’
With the exception of Warner, 20 Australian players have been included in the IPL franchise this year, including Steve Smith, Marcus Stoinis, Riley Meredith, Jai Richardson, Kane Richardson, Moise Henriques and Glenn Maxwell. Cricket Australia has been known to leave it up to the players. If players want to play in the IPL they can play. Even though Pat Cummins and a few other players have been declared absent, Adam Zampa and Kane Richardson have already reacted negatively to being in the bio-bubble.
The presence of Australian players completes the international rankings in the IPL, as other countries such as England, South Africa, Bangladesh and West Indies have already confirmed their participation in the IPL.

The first phase of the IPL-2021 took place in India. But some players from different teams got infected with Kovid-19 and then got kicked out. Prior to the postponement, Warner was dropped from the captaincy of Sun Raisers Hyderabad and captained by New Zealand legend Kane Williamson. Despite this, the team is at the bottom of the eight-team list with only one win in games like 2014 champion Sun Raisers Hyderabad.
