English players’ return will alter IPL teams dynamics

The ECB has declared that members of England’s T20 World Cup team won’t be able to participate in the IPL playoffs. They’re required to head back home for an upcoming four-match T20I series against Pakistan. This move is set to impact players like Buttler from Rajasthan Royals (RR), Philip Salt from Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), and Moeen Ali from Chennai Super Kings (CSK).

Additionally, other players managing commitments between the England World Cup squad and the IPL include Jonny Bairstow, Sam Curran, and Liam Livingstone, all playing for Punjab Kings (PBKS), along with Will Jacks and Reece Topley, who represent Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB). Both franchises have faced challenges this season and might need to win all remaining group fixtures to secure a spot in the playoffs.
