Willey Joined CSK, who lost Mitchell Santner before the start of the tournament and Kedar Jadhav after their opening fixture against MI to injuries. Yorkshire’s Cricket Director Martyn Moxon said,”He would be counter-productive for CSK. We find ourselves in an impossible condition with these late replacement requests.

Willey would have been expected to play in that game and to figure more heavily for the county in Championship cricket than he has in his first two years at the club. Yorkshire allowed Liam Plunkett to replace the injured Kagiso Rabada at Delhi Daredevils while Adil Rashid also hopes to be picked up by an IPL franchise. Yorkshire begins their County Championship campaign against Essex on Friday, and director of cricket Martyn Moxon said: “We find personally in an impossible situation with these late replacement requests, but I hope others will perform well.
