The remaining games of IPL 2021 will take place in the United Arab Emirates immediately after the culmination of India’s Test series against England.
But, one of the major issues that the BCCI will have to deal with is regarding the availability of overseas players for the UAE leg.
If the overseas players do not feature during the second phase of the IPL, then SunRisers Hyderbad, whose entire game-plan is centered around their marquee foreign recruits, will be one of the most severely affected franchise.
Here’s a look at 4 SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) Players Who Might Miss The UAE Leg Of The IPL 2021:
Kane Williamson was appointed SunRisers Hyderabad captain during the India leg of IPL 2021 following David Warner’s sacking.
However, Williamson could only lead the “Orange Army in a solitary game as the IPL got suspended due to Covid.
But, will Williamson return to the IPL in September? Well! It’s looking increasingly tricky. First of all, the Kiwis are scheduled to lock horns with Pakistan in a series of white-ball internationals around the same time.
Secondly, Williamson has been grappled with an elbow injury for some time now. He missed the first few games of IPL 2021 due to the same injury and now he has been ruled out from the 2nd Test of the ongoing series against England.
With the T20 World Cup set to follow the IPL, the New Zealand skipper may look to opt-out of the competition to give himself the best possible chance to be physically and mentally fresh for the marquee quadrennial event.
