IPL 2022 player availability: A number of international T20 players are expected to miss the first few matches of the IPL’s 15th season.
The 15th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) is expected to begin on March 26 in Mumbai and Pune, with the league portion of the event taking place across four locations.
Due to national obligations and/or quarantine requirements imposed by COVID-19, the cash-rich league may see its best abroad talents announce their unavailability during the first few matches for their individual clubs. It’s worth noting that players shifting from one bio-bubble to another are exempt from the BCCI’s three-day quarantine requirement.
With three bilateral series featuring these nations scheduled to collide with the IPL 2022 calendar, at least twenty-odd players from Australia, South Africa, England, the West Indies, and Bangladesh are extremely likely to miss at least one match for their respective teams.
During the IPL 2022, a bilateral series will be played.
The West Indies are presently hosting England in a three-match Test series, with the third and final match planned for March 29. (fifth day).
Pakistan is currently hosting Australia in a historic three-match Test series, with the final Test scheduled for March 21-25. After the Test series, there will be a three-match ODI series and a single T20I, all of which will conclude on April 5.
From March 18 to 23, South Africa will host Bangladesh for a three-match One-Day International series, followed by a two-match Test series from March 31 to April 12. (fifth day of final Test).

Due to the fact that the forthcoming series between the two teams will be played in a’managed environment,’ rather than a bio-bubble, the players will be required to undergo a three-day quarantine and anticipate a negative COVID-19 test result before being allowed to join their respective IPL squads.
South African players may miss one to five initial IPL matches for their franchises, depending on their selection in the Test series that follows the ODIs.
Mustafizur Rahman (DC), Dwaine Pretorius (CSK), Quinton de Kock (LSG), Rassie van der Dussen (RR), Marco Jansen (SRH), Lungi Ngidi (DC), Aiden Markram (SRH), Kagiso Rabada (PBKS), David Miller (PBKS) are the players in question (GT).
