India tour to UK: Men’s and women’s cricket team to travel together in same chartered flight on June2

AIR
For the first time in Indian cricket history, the men’s and women’s cricket team will be travelling together in the same chartered flight to United Kingdom on June 2.
 
While Virat Kohli and boys will be flying to the UK for the World Test Championship from June 18, Mithali Raj and women will be playing one Test, three ODIs and as many T20Is against England.

BCCI has been meticulous in their preparations ahead of the key events.
 
The Indian Board arranged doorstep Covid-19 test for all the players in the squad including the standby players and their family members, who will accompany them, before joining BCCI’s bio-bubble in Mumbai.
 
However, players who live in Mumbai like Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Ajinkya Rahane amongst others, will be given a one-week exemption provided they strictly follow the one-week isolation at home and don’t step out.
 
BCCI has also asked players to get the Covishield vaccine instead of the Covaxin, as the former being a UK-based product will be easily available in the UK.
 
The majority of players have taken the first jab.
 
Meanwhile, wicket-keeper Wriddhiman Saha will join the Mumbai bubble in the week leading to the England departure.

Saha had tested positive for Covid-19 during his stay in the Delhi leg of the IPL. Saha was one of the three players, along with KL Rahul and Prasidh Krishna, whose availability was subject to fitness.
