The men's team will leave for the UK for the World Test Championship (WTC) final against New Zealand and the five-match Test series against England


The UK-bound Indian cricketers have started assembling in Mumbai. And the likes of Mithali Raj, Ravichandran Ashwin, Mohammed Siraj, Mayank Agarwal and Washington Sundar reached Mumbai on a charter flight.

The BCCI’s official handle tweeted pictures of these players flying to Mumbai and they captioned the post as: “First stop, Mumbai. #TeamIndia.

The men’s team will leave for the UK for the upcoming World Test Championship (WTC) final against New Zealand and the five-match Test series against England.

On the other hand, the women’s team will lock horns against England in a one-off Test, three T20Is and three ODIs.

The BCCI had made a foolproof plan for the national team before they depart for the UK to play the World Test Championship final against New Zealand and the five-match Test series against England.

“The players will be undergoing three RT-PCR tests at their homes, and once they return with negative results, they will be assembling in Mumbai on May 19. Everyone in the contingent will be undergoing 14-day quarantine in India before they leave for the UK on June 2,” a BCCI source said.

Almost all the members of the Indian contingent set to depart for the UK have taken the first dose of their Covid-19 vaccine and they are likely to take the second jab in the UK.
