The Indian cricket team’s decision to pull out of the fifth and final Test against England has strained relationships between players. While many experts slammed Virat Kohli & Co., some are reportedly likely to pull out of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB) agreed to cancel the last Test. However, England cricketers are not happy.
As per a report in The Sun, some members of the England team saw the Indian players roaming around in Manchester on Thursday even though they were supposed to remain in the rooms after the outbreak of the virus in the camp.
Five England players are supposed to play in the UAE leg of the IPL. At least one of those 5 players – Jonny Bairstow, Sam Curran, Moeen Ali, Dawid Malan and Chris Woakes – is likely to pull out of the competition because of the fifth Test’s cancellation.
