The BCCI is planning to host the remaining part of IPL 2021 in the UAE during September- October window. One of the major challenges the Indian cricket board will be the availability of foreign players.
There are quite a few bilateral series are planned in the second part of the year when the BCCI is expecting to host the remaining 31 games of Indian Premier League 2021. The board will be discussing the issue with other boards and try to adjust those schedule to assure availability of as many as foreign players as possible. Here is the list of potential available and unavailable foreign players for the second phase of IPL 2021.
While most of the following nations will be busy playing others, Australia will host Sri Lanka for 3-match ODI and T20I series in October just before the ICC T20 World Cup. This is expected to not clash with the IPL much and make the Aussie players partially available. On the other hand, the only foreign players who will be absolutely available are the Proteas. South Africa will host the Netherlands in September with some players leaving for the CPL 2021.
