Many England players have withdrawn from the IPL being held in the UAE. Openers Jonny Bairstow and David Malan are also among the players who have withdrawn their names.
David Malan was bought by the team of Punjab Kings for a huge amount.
The second phase of IPL 2021 is going to be held in UAE from 19 September. For this all the teams have reached UAE. After the cancellation of the Manchester Test, the stars of Team India have also joined their teams after reaching the UAE from England. The stars of the Indian team from England left for the IPL but the players of England did not accompany them, who withdrew from the IPL. Former Indian batsman Aakash Chopra has called it a hoax.
A week before the IPL, David Malan of Punjab Kings and Jonny Bairstow of SRH had withdrawn their names. Jos Buttler, Jofra Archer and Ben Stokes have already withdrawn from the IPL. With the departure of both, the preparations of Rajasthan Royals had suffered a major setback. Jos Buttler has not participated in the tournament due to personal reasons. On the other hand, Stokes has taken an indefinite break from cricket citing mental health. Jofra Archer is recovering from injury.
Aakash Chopra slams England players
Aakash Chopra does not agree with the decision of the England players at all. According to Akash, at the last moment, the players of England have increased the difficulties by cheating their teams, they will have to bear the brunt of this in the next auction. Talking on his YouTube channel, he said, ‘Jos Butler, Jofra Archer, Ben Stokes had already withdrawn their names, but now David Malan, Chris Woakes and Jonny Bairstow have also withdrawn their names. This means that half a dozen England players will not be a part of the IPL. This is a huge number. IPL family will not forget this. England players should keep this in their mind that when you withdraw your name from the IPL season, you cheat the franchise that bought you.
The effect of the decision will be seen in the auction
He said, ‘It means that when the auction is held next time, he will not forget who had come to play the tournament and who had pulled back. And because of this you will say that Mitchell Starc will be sold for a big amount, then it may not be so because when you withdraw your name twice, this thing remains in the mind of the teams.
