England’s managing director Ashley Giles has made it clear that the players will be expected to give preference to international commitments over a rescheduled IPL 2021 in case of a clash. India are looking for a September window to resume the T20 league. However, nothing has been finalized yet. India are also scheduled to host the T20 World Cup in October. England are due to tour Bangladesh and Pakistan before the mega event.
Former left-arm spinner Ashley Giles has been appointed as England’s Head Coach for the T20I and ODI format. The existing England Head Coach Andy Flower meanwhile continues in his role of a Team Director who will be mainly in charge of the Test Team.
