When is the IPL final?

Rising Pune Supergiant face off against Mumbai Indians at 3.30pm today.

Will Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler play?

The destructive batting pair helped the two sides reach the final, with Ben Stokes in form for Pune and Jos Buttler for Mumbai.

But they have both been recalled to the England squad to prepare for the Champions Trophy, so will be unavailable for tonight’s match.

The decision by the ECB has been strongly criticised by Kevin Pietersen.

He tweeted: “Absolutely PATHETIC that @benstokes38 & @josbuttler have to go drink a few beers in Spain instead of playing IPL finals!”

The former England captain also told Sky Sports: “I think it’s pathetic. An absolute shambles.

“Stokes should be playing in the semi-final and the final. The last week of the IPL is a huge occasion.

“What are they going to Spain for? To field a couple of balls? He should be playing in the IPL.

“Just speak to him, speak to Jos Buttler, they’ll talk about how much it has helped their development being out there.”

There is added controversy to the decision to recall the players, given that Cricket Australia have allowed Pune captain Steve Smith to stay in India for the showpiece.
