Ashley Giles, managing director of the England men’s cricket team, recently said that if the Indian Premier League (IPL) reschedules the remaining matches of 2021, it will be difficult for English cricketers to participate. He said England’s international schedule was too busy and it would be difficult for players to play the rest of the IPL 2021, but former England cricketer Kevin Pietersen believes that if the players get together, the rest of the matches will be played.
Peterson wrote on Twitter, ‘It will be interesting to see how the ECB handles the matter so as not to allow its players to participate in the IPL 2021 schedule. When I went up against England, I was alone. This time he is the best branded cricketer. If they stand together, they will play in the IPL. When Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) signed Peterson in 2009, many English cricketers questioned his participation in the T20 league.
It will be interesting to see how the ECB handles this issue, as resetting it does not allow for better players to play the IPL.
When I went up against ENG, I was alone.
This time, it’s their best branded players!
If they stand together, they play IPL!

Now in the last few years, a lot of England players take part in the IPL. This year England will visit Pakistan, Bangladesh. Take part in the ICC T20 World Cup and play the Ashes series thereafter. England’s big players like Jose Butler, Eoin Morgan, Jafra Archer, Ben Stokes are part of various franchise teams in the IPL.
