IPL 2024: Another England player withdraws name from IPL, double blow to the franchise

IPL 2024 England Pacer Pulls Out: The process of withdrawal of names of England players from IPL continues. Earlier, five big English players had withdrawn their names from the entire season. On Wednesday, another big player has withdrawn his name from the upcoming season of IPL. This player was a part of Lucknow Super Giants but even before this, an English player Mark Wood had withdrawn his name from the franchise. Now the franchise has suffered a double blow.

Coach Justin Langer informed

Justin Langer, the new head coach of Lucknow Super Giants, shared this information. He told that England fast bowler David Willey will miss some initial matches of the upcoming IPL season. Before this, big players like Mark Wood, Harry Brook, Phil Salt, Jason Roy have also withdrawn their names. Many questions were raised whether action should be taken against England players but now again a new name has been added to the list.

 

Coach Langer has given personal reasons for withdrawing David Willey’s name. According to him, he has been out of action since the first few matches. That means he can return mid-season. In the IPL 2024 auction, the franchise signed him at a base price of Rs 2 crore. Earlier, Mark Wood had withdrawn his name from the entire season. In his place, the franchise signed Shamar Joseph.

What said the head coach?

Giving an update on this, coach Justin Langer said, ‘Mark Wood has withdrawn his name from the entire tournament and David Willey has also not been able to come yet. Due to this, we are suffering from lack of experience.’ It is noteworthy that Willie had recently played all the matches in Pakistan Super League (PSL). He was seen playing continuously from the league till the finals. But now he has withdrawn his name from IPL. It remains to be seen when he will return.
