Team India, captained by Virat Kohli, has reached Sydney for a two-month tour of Australia where Cricket Australia has decided to leave no stone unturned in the Indian team's visiting Nawazi. CA is working to ensure that the Indian team does not face any discomfort during its two-month Australian tour.
A 32-member team, including aide staff, will spend its first two weeks in Quarantine, although they will be allowed to train there. After the completion of that 14 days, Indians are likely to get some leeway to move around. This exemption will depend on the restrictions imposed in different states. Relatively stringent measures are expected to be implemented in some places such as Adelaide and Melbourne. The Indian team arrived at the hotel in four separate buses together with the Australian players and coaches involved in the IPL. In addition to the hotel security personnel, army and police personnel greeted him.
The Indian team is stationed at the Pullman Hotel. The team will remain here for 14 days. Here, captain Virat Kohli has been given a special penthouse in which the rugby legend Brad Fitler normally stays. The Australian Government has also allowed players' families to live together and will also have to go through the Quarantine Protocol. Ravichandran Ashwin, Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane have gone on a tour of Australia with their wife and children.
Team India's practice session will take place at the Blacktown International Sports Park and the stadium has been fully bio-secured for this. In Sydney, the players are expected to rest for a few days as a precaution in view of health and safety. They will not be allowed to enter someone else's room. This protocol will remain in force for their quarantine period. There is no restriction on how Indian players can start training from November 14 onwards and how many of them can train together. The team management has instructed the players to strictly follow the health safety protocol. The Indian team management is very happy with the way the Indian players have been taken care of after landing at Sydney Airport. Whether it was at the hospitality airport or at the player's hotel arrival.
