NEWS ON TRAVEL

One of the simple ways is that all the coaching staff and players who are not playing in IPL would be flown to Dubai initially.

Subsequently, the whole team travels to Australia together in a single flight. So in order to make that happen, the coaching staff along with players will travel to Dubai by the end of the IPL. 

The staff along with the players will undergo a quarantine period for a week. A different bubble will be made for them.

COVID-19 tests will be taken in order to check if the person is infected. These tests will take place on the very first day then the third day followed by the final day. So as to maintain a safe environment.

Moreover, this plan is simple to execute as the IPL players are already under a bio-bubble environment. So it would be susceptible for them to transfer. And that they make a secured environment for remaining players and staff for smooth operation.

The schedule has already been decided however, the date and venues are prone to change on the basis of the COVID circumstances in the country. 

Moreover, the destination for the arriving players is yet to be decided. And even the duration for quarantine has not been finalized yet. We’ll have to wait for further updates.
