Indian Premier League’s (IPL) England contingent will have to undergo strict 10-day quarantine in a London hotel before they return to their homes.

According to a report by The Guardian, Jonny Bairstow, Jos Buttler, Sam Billings, Chris Woakes, Moeen Ali, Jason Roy and the Curran brothers - Tom and Sam - landed in the UK on Wednesday morning and will begin 10-day quarantine in government-approved hotels.

Eoin Morgan, David Malan, Chris Jordan are still in India and are expected to fly home in next 48 hours.

The players along with coaching staff and commentators such as Kevin Pietersen will have to go through the same process on reaching. On April 19, the UK government placed India under the “red list” where most of the travel to the country has been banned after a devastating second wave of COVID-19 saw it record over 4,00,000 cases of infections daily.

On Tuesday, IPL chairman Brijesh Patel assured that the organizers will make sure of a safe passage for the foreign players and staff. 

The England and Wales Cricket Board said it was working with the BCCI to bring the players back safely. 

“Following the postponement of the Indian Premier League, we are in close contact with our players and staff in India as arrangements are put in place for them to return home safely,” a spokesperson said on Tuesday.

“The ECB understands the BCCI’s decision to postpone the competition for the safety and wellbeing of those involved, and thanks the BCCI for its commitment to do everything in its powers to arrange for the secure and safe passage of all those taking part in the competition.

“Our thoughts remain with the people of India during these challenging times.”
