Indian men and women's squads begin hard quarantine ahead of England tour
India captain Virat Kohli, his white-ball deputy Rohit Sharma and head coach Ravi Shastri joined the England-bound squad’s bio-bubble on Tuesday as it began its eight-day hard quarantine at a city hotel along with the women’s team.
Both squad are expected to fly out on June 2 after all the playing and non-playing members return three negative RT-PCR results.
It is learnt that approval for allowing the players’ families is still awaited, but the BCCI is hopeful that it would be done soon. “We can’t have our players being away from their families for three months and that too, in a bubble.
“That’s never good for mental health,” the source said.
