The rescheduled Indian Premier League (IPL) is going to test the relationship between the England Cricket Board (ECB) and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).

Ashley Giles, the managing director of England men’s cricket team, has firmly said that England players will not release for the rescheduled IPL.

Giles also confirmed that the ECB had no plans to alter their schedule of the upcoming Test series against India to enable a larger window for the IPL. The fifth day of the final Test of the series is scheduled for September 14.

The IPL is

likely to restart on about September 18 and run until around October 12. At the same time, England will be touring Bangladesh and Pakistan.

“We have a full schedule if we go from the end of the fifth Test in September. We are set to leave for Bangladesh in the next couple of days. We have a full schedule right through, including Pakistan and wherever the T20 World Cup is,” said Giles.

“We are going to have to give some of these guys a break at some point. But the intention of giving guys a break for, say, Bangladesh wouldn’t be for them to go and play cricket elsewhere.
