IPL franchises are set to suffer a big blow ahead of the 15th edition that is set to begin from 26th March with the opener between CSK and KKR. There is a big doubt over the availability of Proteas players and BCCI will very soon try to contact over their player’s availability for the upcoming tournament.

South Africa is set to play three-match T20I series as well as two Tests. As far as the schedule is concerned, the Proteas players will certainly miss the first three weeks of the tournament. There have been instances in the past when players were allowed by their board to feature in the league over the national tours. Let’s see if CSA allows their player for the tournament or not.

Delhi Capitals will suffer a big blow as their star pacer Anrich Nortje might miss the first few weeks of the league. A BCCI official said that the board will soon contact CSK chief Graeme Smith in order to have a look on the availability of their players.

“The BCCI will be approaching Graeme Smith and check out if some of the top players are available at least a bit earlier. We are hopeful of a solution as we share a great rapport with CSA,” a senior BCCI official was quoted as saying by Zee News.

Franchises like Punjab Kings, Delhi Capitals will be ready to take a blow in the upcoming tournament.

“Some of the franchises will be hurting if they aren’t available for three weeks. Meanwhile, it must be noted that CSA has allowed its players to pick between national duty and IPL. On being asked about the same, South Africa’s Test skipper Dean Elgar said the loyalty of Proteas players stands a test,”

“The players need to give Cricket South Africa an indication of if they are keen to go to IPL or if they are keen to play for Test side. It’s a bit of a tough one putting that in the players’ box but this I guess, is where you see where players’ loyalty lies,” Elgar was quoted as saying by ESPNcricinfo.
