Almost all the IPL franchises have landed in UAE to prepare for the 13th Edition of IPL starting from 19th September. All the cricketers will have to remain in quarantine for the first 7 days.
According to the rules laid by the BCCI for players entering the bio-bubble in UAE, each player will have to spend 7 days in quarantine. Three tests will be done on 1st, 3rd and 6th day each and if all of them result in negative, only then the player will be able to start training with the whole squad.
So after landing in UAE, all the franchises have gone into quarantine in their respective hotels. Many of them have posted on social media about how they are doing during the quarantine. Let’s have a look.
