The Indian women’s cricket team is likely to be denied permission to train outside during their tough quarantine in Australia. The team has already left on September 19 for their full tour of Australia.
Unfortunately, the restrictions on the land below have increased due to many cases in the country. The women’s team will have to undergo a strict 14-day quarantine after arriving in Brisbane.
“Training consent is highly unlikely after the first week in the current scenario. There may be further changes in the itinerary. Hard quarantine will be very difficult for the players, but that’s what it is,” BCCI official revealed.
The group met for a 15-day conditioning camp in Bangalore, after which they left for Dubai via Dubai. Even the schedule for the series is currently tentative, as confirmed by a source in Cricket Australia.
“However, it is also a preliminary schedule that CA communicated to the BCCI. According to the amended schedule, the Indian team will fly from Bangalore to Dubai tomorrow (Sunday evening) in a chartered flight. From Dubai, the team flies to Brisbane, where they will be quarantined for two weeks before heading to Mackay,Said the source.
The Queensland Government will approve the schedule for the Indian Women’s Tour
Since all the matches will take place in Queensland, the government will approve the schedule that Cricket Australia is drawing up with the help of the BCCI. There were three places where the matches had to be played, viz. Sydney, Perth and Melbourne.
The series starts on September 19 with the one-day series, which will help the teams prepare for the one-day match in 2022. After that, a historic one-off pink ball test will be played from September 30 to October 3. The T20I series, consisting of three matches, is then played to end the tour.
The Indian contingent, which left on Sunday, will arrive in Brisbane on Monday. Whether the series will go as planned remains to be seen.
