England's worsening situation as far as tackling the Covid-19 situation is concerned has put the ECB on high alert. The high-profile series between India and England is all set to go ahead from August 4 in Nottingham and to ensure no untoward situation, all the players, even though fully vaccinated, will have to undergo further testing in the coming weeks.
According to Cricbuzz, the first round of testing took place just a day after the vaccination drive for the Indian team members and their families. However, strict protocols will be followed as all the players and their families will be put into a bio-secure environment with a strict advisory to maintain all social distancing norms.
India will be staying in Durham for now and will play a couple of intra-squad games. A warm-up game has also been organized by the ECB against a select County XI from July 20 in Durham after the Indian team management and the BCCI took up the issue with ECB chief executive Tom Harrison.
