New Delhi: Before the start of the 13th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL), all the teams have got a big relief. Players from Australia and England will not have to stay in quarantine for 6 days after arriving in the UAE. BCCI president Sourav Ganguly has allowed players to remain in quarantine for only 36 hours, keeping in view the demands of the teams.
The franchise teams that have cricketers from England and Australia have all returned from the UK after playing a limited overs series. The rule of 6 days quarantine applies to the arrival of any player in the UAE. But according to reports, Sourav Ganguly has found a solution to the issue.
A senior IPL official said, “Yes, I can confirm that all the 21 players from England and Australia will be quarantined for 36 hours instead of six days.” The issue has been resolved and the top players of most teams will be available from the first match.
Players such as David Warner, Steve Smith, Joffra Archer and Jose Butler arrived in the UAE late on Thursday night, September 17th. After arriving in the UAE, all 21 players underwent Covid 19 Tests. However, before joining the team, players are required to come twice negative in the Corona virus test.
