Overall, India would serve ten-day isolation before walking freely within the bio-bubble premises. Although further details on the same are awaited, the Board of Control for Cricket in India is trying to negotiate the same with the England and Wales Cricket Board. It would be hard on the players, who are already leaving India after serving a ten-day quarantine.

Currently, New Zealand is following the same pattern, having already arrived in England ahead of the two-Test series against the host from June 2. Following three-day strict isolation, the side is training in a group of six within the bubble premises. "The first three days will be spent in hotel room isolation, before mini-training groups of six can be established from days 4-6, pending negative covid results," said New Zealand Cricket.

While NZ is presently serving its quarantine in Southampton, it would move to London later this month, as India would move into Southampton on June 2. Following the WTC final from June 18, India would also be involved in a five-Test series against the host for the Pataudi Trophy in August-September.
