However, there has been no confirmation of the news as reported by former England captain Michael Atherton in ‘The Times’.
“The Board of Control for Cricket in India has enquired about the possibility of moving the final Test of the English summer in order to make room to complete the postponed Indian Premier League,” the report said.
“Informal discussions have been had between the respective boards as cricket continues to grapple with a schedule ravaged by Covid.”
Now, former England skipper Michael Vaughan has given his suggestion regarding the restart of the league.
“Simple solution. Play the First Indian Test a week earlier. No England Test players would then potentially play the 100 so fringe Indian Test players replace them. Then the IPL can finish. Good deal all round,” Vaughan said on Twitter.
