Players from England and South Africa have been told to leave the upcoming IPL midway in-order to train for the bilateral ODI series between both countries. Considering the scheduling of the Champions Trophy, both the boards have decided to give their players a good bracket for practice.
The Proteas are likely to leave IPL 2017 after May 7, while the England players are scheduled to leave in two batches – a few after May 1 and the rest after May 14.
Going by the reports, it has been learnt the franchises have been warned about such a situation through an email while they were sent a list of 351 players, who have been finalized for the IPL auction.
