The Board of Control for Cricket in India has decided to deduct foreign players' salaries if they miss the second leg of IPL 2021. The tournament has been moved to the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Just like 2020, the remaining IPL games will be spread across three venues. This includes Sharjah, Dubai, and Abu Dhabi. The tournament will be held just before the T20 World Cup so that the players get enough practice. However, many foreign stars are likely to miss the tournament due to a packed international calendar. Overall, 29 games were conducted in the 14th season of the Indian Premier League. Thus, with 31 games remaining, the BCCI will need a small window of around three weeks to complete the tournament. 

England and Bangladesh players have been denied from taking part in the rescheduled IPL 2021

According to sources, an official from the Indian cricket board has confirmed that the overseas players will have to bear the brunt if they miss the second leg of the tournament. All the foreign players that will not be a part of the tournament will face pay cuts. As of now, England and Bangladesh players have been denied from taking part in the rescheduled IPL 2021. Last week, the managing director of the England men's team, Ashley Giles, had also made it clear that the English players will be rested during the second leg of the Indian Premier League. The English players would not be allowed to go and play cricket elsewhere since they have a full schedule that includes the T20 World Cup and the Ashes. England is set to tour Bangladesh and Pakistan for a limited-over series after the five-match Test series against India.

The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has denied Shakib Al Hasan and pacer Mustafizur Rahman from taking part in the IPL. Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has also made it clear that they are not going to provide a No Objection Certificate (NOC) to the Bangladesh players to participate in the tournament. Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan had also decided to skip PSL 6 to participate in the forthcoming Dhaka Premier League. Meanwhile, there are no such clarifications from Cricket Australia (CA) as of now.
