IPL 2022: All 12 players of New Zealand will be available in IPL?, Relief news for New Zealand players

IPL 2022:

The clouds of doubt regarding the availability of Kiwi players in IPL 2022 have been cleared. On Friday, New Zealand Cricket (NZC) announced that it will go with a non-IPL team for the T20 and three-match ODI series against the Netherlands. In such a situation, all 12 players including Kane Williamson, Trent Boult and Tim Southee will be available for the IPL starting from 26 March.

New Zealand Team

The New Zealand team will play the only T20 against the Netherlands on March 26, while three ODIs will be held from March to April 4. If the Kiwi players participating in the IPL had to play against the Netherlands, they would have missed out on the first two weeks of the IPL due to the quarantine rules.

The players joining the IPL will leave for India next week to join their respective franchise teams. Lockie Ferguson will join the team this week, who was picked by Gujarat Titans. While players like Devon Conway, Daryl Mitchell, who are going to participate in the IPL for the first time, will also join the team by March.

New Zealand Players that will take part in IPL 2022:

Kane Williamson (SRH), Lockie Ferguson (GT), Trent Boult (RR), Adam Milne (CSK), Mitchell Santner (CSK), Tim Southee (KKR), James Neesham (RR), Glenn Phillips (SRH), Devon Conway (CSK), Finn Allen (RCB), Tim Seifert (DC), Daryl Mitchell (RR)

South African players

However, this is not the case with South African players. Eight IPL stars will be out of the first match after being named in the ODI series against Bangladesh. Also, if Cricket South Africa (CSA) chooses a full strength squad for the two-match Test series, they can be out of the IPL for two more weeks.

The BCCI is currently in talks with the CSA so that a consensus can be reached. CSA may announce weak team made up of non-IPL players for Test series
