India’s men and women cricket team will resume their international duties with a long India tour of England. India’s men team will feature in the final of the inaugural edition of the World Test Championship against New Zealand from June 18 to June 22 at Southampton. After the WTC final, India will square off against England in the five-match Test series, scheduled to start on August 4.
India’s women team, on the other hand, will play a lone Test against England’s women team from June 16 to June 19 at the County Ground in Bristol. The Test fixture will be followed by three One Day Internationals and as many T20 Internationals.
For the same, both the men’s and women’s teams have reached the United Kingdom (UK). The players took a charter flight from Mumbai to Heathrow airport. They reached London early in the morning on June 3 and checked into their cricket ground-cum-hotel in Southampton. They will now have to undergo a mandatory quarantine period before getting on with their respective itineraries.
All the Indian players served a mandatory 14-day quarantine period in a hotel room in the biosecure bubble in Mumbai made by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). Since the players have already served isolation in India, they are required to undergo a hard-quarantine for only three days.
After three days, the teams will be allowed to train in small groups for the next two days. During five days, both men’s and women’s teams will undergo three Covid-19 tests. Following the completion of five days, the teams can train properly without any restrictions.
