Foreign players not seen in IPL 14

New Delhi: The second round of the Indian Premier League is going to start in the UAE from September 19. The first 30 matches of this tournament, which lasted till October 15, have been played in India in April-May. The last 31 matches, including the final, are to be played in the UAE.
All the 8 teams have started finalizing their preparations. Teams like Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians have already reached UAE. Despite this, doubts about many foreign players playing in the second leg of IPL 14 still remain. Some players have already withdrawn their names and some are in the queue.
In such a situation, the teams are looking for an alternative to the players who have withdrawn from the tournament. Every day some or the other team is announcing new foreign players to join the team. Let’s take a look at which of the legendary foreign players have left the second phase of IPL-14 so far.
Australian fast bowler Pat Cummins, who plays for Kolkata Knight Riders, will not be seen playing in the UAE leg of the IPL. He has withdrawn his name citing personal reasons. Cummins’ absence will certainly have an impact on KKR’s performance and title claim.
England’s swashbuckling wicket-keeper batsman Jos Buttler will also not be seen playing in the second leg of IPL 14. It is believed that he has taken this decision because of the dates of the birth of his second child which is clashing with the IPL. After the IPL, Butler will definitely be seen playing in the England jersey in the T20 World Cup in the UAE.
Australia’s young leg-spinner Adam Zampa will also not be seen playing in the second leg of IPL 2021. He is in the recently announced Australian squad for the T20 World Cup. In such a situation, he will finalize his preparations for the World Cup. The T20 World Cup is also to be organized in the UAE after the conclusion of IPL-14.
Australian player Kane Richardson will also not be a part of the second phase of IPL 2021. In the current season, he is a member of RCB captained by Virat Kohli. Kangaroo fast bowler also has plans for the World Cup like Adam Zampa, due to which he will not play in the Indian tournament.
Australia’s young fast bowler Riley Madrith has a side strain problem and due to this he will not be able to play for Punjab Kings in the UAE leg of IPL 2021.
Another young Australian fast bowler Jhye Richardson was part of the Punjab Kings squad but he too will not be a part of the second leg of the tournament.
Australian player Daniel Sams has also withdrawn his name from IPL 14. He made this decision for mental health reasons. He plays for RCB under the captaincy of Virat Kohli in the IPL.
Kiwi player Finn Allen became a part of RCB but due to playing for the national team, he will not be able to play for RCB in the second phase of IPL this season.
England fast bowler Jofra Archer has not been seen in action for some time due to injury. He could not take part in the Test series against India also due to injury. In such a situation, he will not be seen playing in the UAE leg of the IPL as well.
