Pat Cummins not to return for the resumption of IPL 2021 in UAE
Australia pacer Pat Cummins would not be heading to the UAE to take part in the remaining matches of Indian Premier League 2021 for the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). According to a report in Sydney Morning Herald, Cummins has already made it clear that he would not be taking part in the remaining matches of the IPL. However, there is no reason given behind his decision. "David Warner and Pat Cummins could be rested from the West Indies tour because of family reasons - others could follow after a draining year in several bubbles - and Cummins, despite a multimillion-dollar IPL contract, has already said he will not return to the T20 tournament this season," stated the report.
Earlier, Ashley Giles, the managing director of the England men's team, had said that the England and Wales Cricket (ECB) are not planning to change their schedule for the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021.
The suspended 14th edition of IPL is scheduled to be played in UAE in September-October this year with the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) confirming the rescheduling of the league on Saturday.
