News

The families of both men’s and women’s squads will be allowed to travel with the teams

In a shot in the arm for the India men’s and women’s squads that are due to tour England, the families of players and coaching and support staff have been cleared by the UK government to accompany them on tour. The men’s team will be on tour for close to four months, playing the the World Test Championship against New Zealand before embarking on five Tests against England. The women are due to play one Test followed by three ODIs and three T20Is.

The families will be on board the charter flight that will fly both the men’s and women’s squads, which will land on June 3 in London. From there, both squads will move to Southampton, where they will serve the required quarantine period, the duration for which is yet to be confirmed.
