England in no plans to reorganize Test schedule for IPL, says Giles

Managing director of England men’s cricket, Ashley Giles said that currently England and Wales Cricket Board won’t be looking to change the schedule of the England Test series.

England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) has no plans for rescheduling the England Test series for the IPL.

Managing director of England men’s cricket, Ashley Giles said that currently England and Wales Cricket Board won’t be looking to change the schedule of the England Test series.

“I’m not aware of anything official, any requests to shift anything,” Giles, speaking at the launch of IG as the new official partner of England Cricket, said. “As far as we’re concerned and what we’re prepared for, the matches will be where they are. I’m not surprised there are all sorts of speculation. Everyone wants to get their cricket in. But we’ve not received anything official and we’re cracking on.

“We have a full schedule. If we go from the end of the fifth Test in September, we are set to leave for Bangladesh on September 19 or 20. We have a full schedule right through including Pakistan and wherever the T20 World Cup is.

“We are going to have to give some of these guys a break at some point. But the intention of giving guys a break for, say, Bangladesh, wouldn’t be for them to go and play cricket elsewhere.
“We have to manage our schedule now, so we get our guys arriving in the best shape possible for the T20 World Cup and the Ashes.”

BCCI would be eagerly looking forward to posting the remaining IPL in England.
