The BCCI has chosen the last half of September to the first half of October to host the rest of the IPL. The IPL has been postponed to early May due to coronavirus infection in India. The Indian Cricket Board is now expending all its energy to organize the rest of the tournament.
Meanwhile, if the IPL is held, the boards will have to release new cricketers from the busy schedule of international cricket. The England and Wales Cricket Board has already objected to the release of national team players. The indication that the shortage of star players could be read matched yesterday. Australian fast bowler Pat Cummins has said that he will not return to the IPL this time.
After Kolkata Knight Riders, Royal Challengers Bangalore can also lose their most expensive pacer. Because, New Zealand’s Kyle Jamieson says he doesn’t know yet whether he will go to the UAE in September-October.
Bangalore has spent Rs 15 crore for Kyle Jamieson this season. Although he did not perform well for the team, he played in all the matches. Virat Kohli doesn’t have to think about at least one position in the team as he has Jamieson. Bangalore is doing better this time than any other time. He is in the third place after winning 5 out of 6 matches. But whether the team will get the main pacer for the rest of the tournament is in doubt.
Jamieson is currently in England with the national team to play in the final of the Test Championship. New Zealand will also play a series against host England before the final against India. However, many Australian and English cricketers are rumored to be out of the IPL, so Jamieson was also questioned. “I have no idea, to be honest,” he said. We haven’t talked about it yet. Right now I am thinking about the Test against England. Then there is the final against India. I don’t want to think so far yet. ‘
Earlier, after the announcement of the postponement of the IPL, Jamieson had to go through a lot of trouble. He went to Maldives from Delhi with Kiwi captain Kane Williamson. From there they appeared in the UK. “It was a very unique experience,” he told the media. You can never be ready for something like that. We were informed at that time. There were some good people from BCCI and IPL around us.
