How are England's T20 World Cup-Bound Players Impacted by the IPL 2024 Playoffs Schedule?

## England’s T20 World Cup-Bound Players to Miss IPL 2024 Playoffs

The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) has announced that players selected for the upcoming T20 World Cup squad will miss the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 playoffs. England is set to play a four-match T20I series against Pakistan at home on 22, 25, 28, and 30 May, leading up to the ICC event.

Impact on IPL Teams

This decision means that several English players currently featuring in the IPL, including Jos Buttler (Rajasthan Royals), Phil Salt (Kolkata Knight Riders), and Moeen Ali (Chennai Super Kings), will be unavailable for the knockout stages if their respective teams qualify.

Preparation for T20 World Cup

The ECB stated that the selected players will return in time for the Pakistan series to prepare for the T20 World Cup, which begins on 4 June for England against Scotland.

Key Players Missing

Other stars who will miss the IPL playoffs are Liam Livingstone, Adil Rashid, Reece Topley, and Sam Curran. These withdrawals will undoubtedly impact the teams’ chances of success in the latter stages of the tournament.

Notable Returns

Despite the absences, England’s T20 World Cup squad boasts the return of pacer Jofra Archer, who has recovered from a 12-month injury layoff. Chris Jordan, another experienced quick, has also been included.

England’s World Cup Squad

The full England squad for the T20 World Cup 2024 is as follows:

* Jos Buttler (C)
