ICC Allows Close Family Members To Stay In Bio-Bubble With Players During T20 World Cup.
According to the International Cricket Council, having family members within the T20 World Cup bio bubble can help individuals relax and enjoy themselves.
After being postponed by a year in 2020 owing to a global epidemic, the ICC T20 World Cup is ready to begin in just a few days. The International Cricket Council (ICC) is leaving no stone unturned in its efforts to guarantee a successful T20 World Cup. The main challenge for the ICC in hosting the T20 World Cup is ensuring that the event is free of COVID, and they are taking all precautionary steps to address the issue.
Players’ families are permitted to accompany them on their travels.
The ICC wants close family members to join players and be in the same T20 World Cup bio bubble, while spectators would be barred from snapping photographs with the players. During the briefing, Alex Marshall, the ICC’s Head of Integrity, stated,
We also know that being able to visit close family members may be a huge help in lowering stress and creating a more pleasurable atmosphere for people. As a result, we have permitted a small number of close family members to accompany teams if they so want.
In certain situations, the family members who attend must also go through the isolation phase and ensure that they are negative, as well as the three tests, and then remain in the controlled environment throughout the event. And I believe you’ve noticed this at other events as well. Take, for example, the IPL. So there are alternatives. But, in fact, they enter the management area and must remain in that environment until the end of the tournament, and we make certain that they are safe while traveling and at the stadium. However, they will be able to play golf on a golf course where we have designated an area for them and can keep them isolated from other people. So, while we have a controlled atmosphere, we do enable individuals to do activities other than sit in their hotel room, he explained.
From October 17 to November 14, the seventh edition of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup will be held in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Oman. Team India will kick off their ICC T20 World Cup 2021 campaign against archrivals Pakistan on October 24 in Dubai, where they will compete in Group 2.
