Former cricketer Kevin Pietersen said “If English players will stand together, they’ll play IPL”

Ashley Giles, the director of the England men’s team, had hinted that Three Lions’ players won’t be available for the rest of this edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) if it gets rescheduled for sometime later this year. But former skipper Kevin Pietersen believes if the English players stand together they’re going to play within the tournament.

Ashley Giles, the director of the England men’s team, had hinted that Three Lions’ players won’t be available for the rest of this edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) if it gets rescheduled for sometime later this year. But former skipper Kevin Pietersen believes if the English players stand together they’re going to play within the tournament.

The IPL Governing Council (GC) and Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) in an emergency meeting had unanimously decided to postpone the IPL 2021 season last week. BCCI is now looking to tap the September window before the T20 World Cup to end the league.

“It’s getting to be interesting to observe how the ECB handles this issue around not allowing its best players to play in the IPL if it’s rescheduled. Once I went up against ENG, I used to be alone. This time, it’s all their best-branded players! If they stand together, they’ll play IPL,” Pietersen tweeted.
