UAE is set to host the remaining 31 matches from September 15 to October 15. But, the availability of foreign players remains a big headache for the Cricket Board.

IPL 2021 Phase 2: 10 big players who are likely to miss remainder of IPL 2021

Jos Buttler (Rajasthan Royals)

Rajasthan Royals openers Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes are unlikely to be available for the remainder of IPL 2021. Jos Buttler had played a key role for RR in IPL Phase 2 as RR was placed sixth in the points table. He had scored 254 runs in the first 7 matches, including a century.

Trent Boult (Mumbai Indians)

MI could miss the services of New Zealand pace spearhead Trent Boult. He has been phenomenal with the ball since his arrival at the club and played a key role in winning multiple IPL trophies. Trent Boult had taken 8 wickets in IPL 2021 Phase 1.

Ben Stokes (Rajasthan Royals)

Allrounder Ben Stokes, who is a key player for RR, was ruled out due to a finger injury in IPL 2021 Phase 1. His absence will continue to hurt Sanju Samson-led IPL franchise.

Eoin Morgan (Kolkata Knight Riders)

Since Eoin Morgan is the leader of the England and KKR team, his absence could lead to big trouble for his franchise. The squad lacks players who could step up the role with Dinesh Karthik leaving the top job during IPL 2020.

Moeen Ali (Chennai Super Kings)

CSK’s new recruit Moeen Ali who was phenomenal for the MS Dhoni’s squad may also miss the remainder of IPL. This could hurt CSK as they had found a good player who can play at No.3 and assist in the bowling department. He scored 206 runs and took 5 wickets in IPL 2021 Phase 1 for the Men in Yellow.

SRH team management could be in a fix after removing David Warner from the captaincy role. Their newly-appointed skipper Kane Williamson might also be unavailable for IPL 2021 Phase 2. This is because New Zealand will be playing a 3-match ODI and T20 series against Pakistan in UAE.

Kyle Jamieson (Royal Challengers Bangalore)

The Bangladesh lead pacer might opt for national duty at home instead of playing in the IPL. He is a key player in the Rajasthan Royals squad and his absence could further deteriorate RR’s bowling. He took as many as 8 wickets in 7 matches for RR in the first phase of IPL 2021.

Rashid Khan (Sunrisers Hyderabad)
