Players Travelling via Bus
The teams are travelling via buses which also part of the bubble that will be a problem. BCCI told ANI
“See, not just the teams, but also the buses and drivers and everything is inside the bio-secure bubble. So, travelling to the stadium on match days will not be a problem. Regular tests are being done on those working around the teams as well just like it was last year in the UAE. The curfew won’t hurt travel to and from the stadium,” the source said.

BCCI Vice-President Statements
“In order to cope with this coronavirus rise, I think the only solution is to get vaccinated. BCCI is also thinking on those lines that players should be vaccinated. Nobody knows when coronavirus is going to end and you can’t give a deadline that by this time frame it will not be there so players can play easily. So, I think now will have to think over that. Vaccination should be done for the players also,” Shukla told ANI
