Shreyas Iyer details her quarantine experience with a fun post – cricket
The Indian cricket team left the UAE on Wednesday to embark on a tour of Australia for a full-blown cricket series. The India team arrived in Sydney yesterday and they are traveling together due to Covid-19 rules imposed by different countries and will now undergo a mandatory 14-day quarantine on the outskirts of the city. Upon arriving in Sydney, several players uploaded photos from the airport with their families and teammates.
With the team in quarantine for 14 days, players will not have a chance to get out of the biosecurity bubble. India batsman and 2020 IPL runner-up Shreyas Iyer shared a photo from his social media account from his hotel room in Australia. And the boss of Delhi Capitals said he has found his perfect quarantine company. “
Iyer was instrumental in Delhi Capitals’ run towards the 2020 Indian Premier League final. He has his best season with the bat, scoring 514 runs in 17 games. He was fourth on the Orange Cap list behind KL Rahul, Shikhar Dhawan and David Warner.
This is the first series that Team India will play since the country was put under lockdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Competition in the series will begin with a three-game ODI series beginning on November 27 in Sydney. The first T20I will then be played in Canberra on December 4 and the remaining two on December 6 and 8 at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
The long-awaited Test series kicks off on December 17 at Adelaide Oval. India will play four Tests against Australia to regain the Border-Gavaskar trophy.
India captain Virat Kohli will return home after the first test in Adelaide, which will be India’s first day and night test in Australia due to the birth of his first child. The BCCI granted him paternity leave and in his absence Ajinkya Rahane (vice captain) will in all likelihood lead the last three games.
Rohit Sharma, who led the Mumbai Indians to their fifth IPL title, took a break from the ODI and T20I sides to take care of his hamstring injury and get back in shape in the four-game test series.
