Vivo IPL 2021: West Indian cricketers have doubts about Vivo IPL 2021 phase 2.
Vivo IPL 2021: On May 29, the Cricket Control Council of India (BCCI) announced that the second stop of Vivo IPL 2021 will be held in the United Arab Emirates. A special general assembly took place to discuss with other members of the office. The Indian board also said they would start discussions with their overseas counterparts to get a better idea of their players and availability.
Earlier it was revealed that the availability of Australian and English players is questionable and that they are most likely to withdraw from the Elite Premier Division due to a busy schedule. Now, according to some news outlets, West Indian cricketers who will compete in the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) are also uncertain about their participation.
The second phase of Vivo IPL 2021 will start in the third week of September and the final will take place around mid-October.

According to the Hindustan Times report, it is impossible for the West Indies Cricket Council to prepare or postpone CPL in this 11th hour. The IPL Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Punjab Kings (PBKS) teams also own the CPL Trinbago Knight Riders (TKR) franchise and St Lucia Zouks believes that in this light, postponing the league will be tricky.
The Indian Cricket Council is discussing with other Cricket Councils the availability of players so that any replacement calls can be taken at the earliest.
Indian cricketers will leave England just after the end of the India-England five-game test series. Bubble-to-bubble transfer will be performed to reduce additional quarantine time for players.
Before the start of the CPL, the international program of the West Indies is loaded where it will host Pakistan, South Africa and Australia for the T20I and ODI meetings,
Players like Kieron Pollard, Dwayne Bravo, Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, Shimron Hetmyre and others will be busy in their home mission and their availability in the 2021 IPL remains under threat.
