IPL 2021: BCCI to cut half of the salary amount if foreign cricketers don't take part in UAE leg


The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has called off the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League after witnessing the rising number of cases in the competition. Moreover, Varun Chakravarthy and Sandeep Warrier of Kolkata Knight Riders, Sunrisers Hyderabad's wicket-keeper batsman Wriddhiman Saha, the experienced spinner Amit Mishra from Delhi Capitals and the batting coach of Chennai Super Kings, Michael Hussey has been tested positive during the pandemic.

Pat Cummins and a few more will get half amount if they don't join in UAE:

Considering the recent reports, the final leg of the Indian Premier League will be rescheduled at United Arab Emirates (UAE) in the September window.
