leeds. Many teams have suffered losses due to the return of England cricket team players in the middle of the Indian Premier League. The biggest impact will be on the Rajasthan Royals team playing the eliminator. England captain Jos Buttler defended the England and Wales Cricket Board's (ECB) decision to recall its players from the IPL for the series against Pakistan. Also said that international cricket should not conflict with the world's biggest T20 league.

Buttler's absence will be felt by Rajasthan Royals when they face Royal Challengers Bangalore in the IPL Eliminator on Wednesday. Other England players who missed the playoffs include Will Jacks, Reece Topley and Phil Salt. England will face Pakistan in the first match of the four-match T20 series here on Wednesday. “I said, 'Look, as captain of England, my main priority is to play for England,' Buttler told reporters here on Tuesday.

He said, “It is my personal opinion that any international cricket should not conflict with the IPL. I think these matches have been a part of the calendar for a long time. Obviously your number one priority before the World Cup is to play for England and perform for England, I think that's the best preparation.

The Rajasthan team had made a great start in the IPL and due to losing the last four matches, it has been forced to play the eliminator. The team slipped from second to third place after the last league match against Kolkata Knight Riders was abandoned due to rain. Hyderabad team won the last match and secured second place. England players returned home even before the completion of the league stage on Sunday
