“CSK have been proactive. They had informed the players to be ready to leave on August 10. But the delay in SOPs from the BCCI could push that back,” The Times of India quoted a source as saying.

Also KKR are aiming for August 19-20 departure, while other teams are looking at leaving the country by August 25.

Reportedly, all the teams will have to create their own bio-bubble and organise the camps before September 19. Apart from that there is news circulating about limiting the size of the squad which is generally 25-28.

“If at all there are directions on the squad strength, then the franchises would prefer to prune their non-playing staff. Some franchises will leave this decision to the coach and the team management. Ideally, if there is a cap then it should be on the entourage as a whole,” an unnamed franchise official was quoted as saying by TOI.

It was also reported earlier, that the franchises will also pool in to get the South African players from the country, where there are travel restrictions.
