David Warner, Pat Cummins, Josh Hazlewood, and Glenn Maxwell have been issued with Non-Objection Certificates by Cricket Australia to participate in the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL) from April 6 2022. The above-mentioned players wouldn’t be part of the white-ball leg of the Australia – Pakistan series starting from 29 March 2022. 

Before the limited-over games, both countries will go head to head in a three-match Test series starting from 4 March at the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium. This will be the first Aussie team to tour Pakistan since 1998, where the hosts lost both the Test and One-Day series 1-0 and 3-0, respectively. 

David Warner was picked up by the Delhi Capitals for a total of Rs 6.25 crore. Whereas Pat Cummins returned to the Kolkata Knight Riders for Rs 7.25 crore. Josh Hazelwood would join Glen Maxwell at the Royal Challengers Bengaluru as he was bought for Rs 7.75 crore. Maxwell was retained by RCB after a successful performance in the last season of IPL. 

Former captain and current Australia selector George Baliey expressed his confidence in the squad picked for the One-days and T20s against Pakistan. “We have picked a talented and versatile squad with a number of challenges to juggle, including the tour structure of predominantly 50 over games, management of several multi-format players in the medium to long term; and our need to build experience and depth in preparation for two short-form World Cups within the next 18 months”, Bailey said.

“We’re confident the squad can both compete successfully on this tour and continue our progress towards those crucial tournaments,” he added.
