BCCI vice-president Rajiv Shukla has made it clear that the absence of foreign players will not affect the remaining matches of the IPL 2021. “There will be Indian players for the remaining 31 matches in the UAE and some foreign players too. We will finish the tournament with them,” he said. The remaining 31 matches of the IPL 2021 will be played in the UAE between September and October, the BCCI said on Saturday at SGM. The BCCI Indian Premier League’s 14th season was postponed indefinitely on May 4 after many players hit Corona.

Speaking to Khaleej Times, Rajiv Shukla said, “We have also discussed the issue of foreign players. Our main focus is to complete this season of IPL. Can’t leave it in the middle. So it is best to have any foreign players available. We will not stop organizing the tournament as the remaining matches are not available. Indian players attend, foreign players stay, but some foreign players do not attend. Like I said, we have to finish the tournament.

He said, ‘So the franchise looks at other players. Whoever is available, we complete the tournament. This is our policy. Rajeev Shukla is in the UAE and the rest of the BCCI officials will reach here and then talk to the Emirates Cricket Board. He said, ‘We are in talks with the Cricket Board and other officials. And accordingly, the schedule is set so that this year’s tournament is as smooth as it was last year. There is only one issue and it is about the audience, whether they are allowed or not. So we talk about this with them.
