South African cricketers, who are part of the ODI squad for the three-match series against Pakistan, will be allowed to left for the Indian Premier League (IPL).
According to the reports, the South Africa cricket board has allowed the IPL-bound players to fly to India after the second ODI on April 4.
These include the main African players such as Kagiso Rabada, David Miller, Quinton de Kock, Lungi Ngidi, and Anrich Nortje. Also, these five players were also not part of the squad for the four Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is) against Pakistan due to the same reason.
The CSA had described that a contract with the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) was the reason players were allowed to ignore the series and participate in the IPL.
Earlier, South African fast bowler Dale Steyn has questioned the absence of the senior players in the squad for the T20 international series against Pakistan.
On his Twitter account, Dale Steyn said in his statement that,
“I missed the reason why our big dogs aren’t playing the T20s against Pak?”
South Africa will play three ODIs and four T20Is against Pakistan from April 2 to April 16 in Centurion and Johannesburg.
