New Zealand Cricket (NZC) chief David White has confirmed the participation of New Zealand cricketers in the upcoming second phase of the IPL 2021. Over the past few days, there has been a lot of speculation on the matter, given that the New Zealanders will tour Pakistan in the September-October window. With this round clashing with the recently released schedule for the second stage of the IPL 2021, many have seen that the likes of Ken Williamson, Trent Bolt, James Nesham and others will not feature in the T20 Elite. Doubts were raised about its availability after the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) requested two more T20I matches apart from the three ODIs already planned and three T20Is. However, David White stated that these cricketers will give precedence to the IPL tournament which will be held in the United Arab Emirates, the same venue as the upcoming T20 World Cup. David White said as reported by GeoTV.New Zealand Players in IPL 2021: Kane Williamson (Sunrisers Hyderabad), Adam Milne (Mumbai Indians), Trent Boult (Mumbai Indians), Mitchell Santner (Chennai Super Kings), Luke Ferguson (Kolkata Knight) Riders), Tim Seifert (Kolkata Knight Riders), Finn Allen (Royal Challengers Bangalore), Kyle Jamieson (Royal Challengers Bangalore).
