Cricket Australia has given David Warner, Pat Cummins, and others permission to compete in the IPL 2022 starting on April 6th.

Cricket Australia awarded a No-Objection Certificate (NOC) to certain of its centrally contracted players on Tuesday (February 22) to play in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 season, which begins on April 6. As a result, David Warner, Pat Cummins, Josh Hazlewood, and Glenn Maxwell will be unavailable for Australia’s next white-ball series against Pakistan.

Australia will play Pakistan in a three-match Test series starting March 4 and ending March 25. This would be Australia’s first visit to Pakistan since 1998. From March 29 to April 5, the limited over series will begin. The white-ball series versus Pakistan is scheduled to coincide with the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022, which is set to begin in March.

Meanwhile, Australia confirmed their ODI and T20I squads on Monday, which will face the hosts in three ODIs and one T20I encounter. Along with likely opener Ben McDermott, skipper Aaron Finch will be responsible for getting the team off to a solid start. Marnus Labuschagne, Mitchell Marsh, and Steve Smith will make up the middle of the lineup. Wicketkeeper Alex Carey, Cameron Green, and Marcus Stoinis will all be looking for a good finish for Australia.
