The resumption of the Indian Premier League in United Arab Emirates is less than a month away. Teams are gradually beginning to assemble in UAE, preparing for the second half of the season which was paused after growing COVID-19 cases inside teams in May. Most overseas players are expected to be available for the tournament, even though the final confirmation is not yet in for many teams/franchises.
Here’s a list of players who are unavailable for the UAE leg.
The Rajasthan Royals and England wicketkeeper-batsman will miss the tournament due to the birth of his second child. The franchise has signed Glenn Phillips as his replacement.
A recurring elbow injury has ruled Archer out of action for the rest of this year.
The Royal Challengers Bangalore legspinner will miss the tournament. RCB have replaced him with Sri Lanka’s Wanindu Hasaranga.
The RCB left-arm pacer is not available either. The franchise replaced him with Dushmantha Chameera from Sri Lanka.
