The players will be available for their franchise only after the Pakistan tour is over. CA sources have confirmed this.
“Yes, we have given NOC to players to be available for their franchises in IPL from April 6. Players can be available only after the Pakistan tour is over.

The last match will be played on April 5.”Sources told news agency ANI,
