England-Bound Indian Cricketers To Assemble In Mumbai Soon For Quarantine
Members of the Indian cricket team could assemble in Mumbai either on May 19 or May 24 to undergo quarantine before their departure to England on June 2 by a charter flight.
There has been a talk of the players assembling in Mumbai on May 19 and serving a two-week-long quarantine period. But it has been learned that the Indian cricket board is also mulling an option of having players in Mumbai on May 24 for a week-long quarantine in a Mumbai hotel.
"The two dates are being discussed and final decision will be taken in the next few days," said a source in the know of things. The team will travel on a charter flight. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is may also get the players tested at their homes.
The Indian players and staff will also have to undergo quarantine for 10 days after arrival in England since India is in the 'red' list of Covid-affected countries. They will have to undergo tests during the quarantine, including on or after the eighth day of quarantine.
