Mithali Raj and Harmanpreet Kaur thanked BCCI after they arranged charters for the team to travel to Mumbai and also conducted RT-PCR tests at home.
India women’s Test and ODI skipper Mithali Raj and vice-captain Harmanpreet Kaur on Tuesday thanked the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for arranging charters to take the cricketers to Mumbai for the two-week quarantine ahead of the UK tour and conducting regular RT-PCR tests at home with an eye on COVID-19. “Traveling is a challenge in the pandemic but it is reassuring to see elaborate measures by BCCI for our health and safety. A charter flight to Mumbai and UK and regular RT-PCR Tests at home,” Mithali tweeted.
Harmanpreet Kaur while tweeting also mentioned that some players made their own choice of travel to Mumbai, keeping in mind the distance and individual convenience.
“The BCCI has organized Charter flights to ferry both men and women players to Mumbai before we leave for the UK. Considering the distance and individual convenience players have made their own choice,” Harmanpreet tweeted.
India women and England will first start with a four-day Test match, beginning June 16. Then it will be followed by three ODIs beginning June 27 with the matches supposed to be played at Bristol, Taunton, and Worcester.
Both teams will then play three T20Is, beginning July 9 and the three matches will be played at Northampton, Hove, and Chelmsford.
