Indian cricket team will take a 20-day holiday from their bubble life After WTC Final 2021
The Indian cricket team will take a 20-day holiday from their bubble life in the United Kingdom following the World Test Championship Final 2021 against New Zealand, according to team management sources. Following the WTC Final, the Men in Blue will face England in a five-match Test series. To give them a much-needed respite from the constraints of the bio-bubble environment, the will disperse on June 24 and then re-group in the bio-bubble on July 14 ahead of the Test matches.
The group will take a break following the final against New Zealand on June 24 and then rejoin around July 14 to prepare for the Test series against England, which begins on August 4.
Despite the fact that the lads will have a 20-day break following India vs. New Zealand Test series, the source indicated that the players will not be able to leave the UK during this time. “As you can see, it’s rather straightforward. The lads need to unplug and unwind, but we can’t forget that COVID-19 is still around. As a result, travel plans must be devised in such a way that the lads and families in the UK are not stranded anywhere during their vacation. Consider traveling to another nation and discovering that it has been declared unsafe to visit owing to an increase of incidents. You don’t want your athletes or their families to be in this situation. “As a result, we’re looking at locations in the United Kingdom,” said the person.
Before flying for England, Indian skipper Virat Kohli expressed the need for a vacation after the WTC Final 2021, citing the pressure of the five-match series. I feel like, after WTC, it’s a wonderful time to refresh and reorganize, and ideally, if things are going well, just for the players to be normal and disconnect again, to appreciate that we have the pressure of a five-match series, he added.
We were able to recharge and reset because we had the ability to go out and explore the kinds of things that were available to us. “I believe it’s excellent; it’ll allow us time to rest and prepare for a big series,” he continued.
Since their arrival in England on June 3rd, Team India has been under a strict bio-bubble environment. The WTC final will be held in Southampton for the first time on June 18th.
