The IPL 2021 season was suspended on May 4 due to a rising number of Covid-19 cases. Rajasthan Royals was positioned at the fifth spot with 6 points from 7 games.
Manoj Badale Statement
“I think the challenge is just finding space and calendar. The players are already playing too much cricket. The calendars are incredibly packed, and particularly this year after COVID-19, boards from around the world are trying to get as many competitions and as many Test matches in as possible,” said Badale.

“I think it’s going to be a real challenge. There’s a possibility. I think it’s a small possibility of something in September in the UK or possibly something in the Middle East, either side of the T20 World Cup, but I think it’s going to be a real challenge,” he added.
Three Lions’ players
The managing director Ashley Giles of the England men’s team, gave hint. The ‘three Lions’ players not be present for the remainder of this series of the IPL if it gets rescheduled for some time later this year.

Ashley Giles statement
“We’ve got a full FTP schedule. So if those tours to Pakistan and Bangladesh in September and October are going ahead, I’d expect the players to be there,”
“The New Zealand scenario was very different. Those Test matches were formalized at the end of January, by which time all those contracts and NOCs (no objection certificates) were signed for full involvement in the IPL,” he further added.
