There is now only a few days left for the 14th season of the Indian Premier League to begin. The 14th season of the IPL will begin on April 09. Meanwhile, before the start of the tournament, MS Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings got a big shock. In fact, Australian fast bowler Josh Hazlewood has suddenly withdrawn his name from the tournament citing personal reasons.
Information given in an interview given to cricket australia
Hazlewood gave information about his departure from IPL 2021 in an interview given to Cricket Australia. He said, I have been in bio bubble for the last 10 months. In such a situation, now I want to take a break from cricket. Actually, now I want to spend some time with my family. Now I will be here in Australia for the next two months.
Hazelwood further said, further we have to go on a tour of the West Indies and Bangladesh. And then the T20 World Cup and then the Ashes series. This means that the next one year is going to be very busy. That is why I have decided to separate from IPL 2021.

Hazelwood joined CSK team in IPL 2020
Significantly, Chennai Super Kings bought Hazelwood in the IPL 2020 auction. However, last year he got the opportunity to play only three matches. In this, he was successful in taking a wicket. Last year, the IPL was held in the UAE, but this time it is going to be in India only. In such a situation, Hazelwood could prove to be very useful for Chennai.
