As per the standard operating procedure (SOP) sent out by the BCCI, it is compulsory for all players, management, and support staff entering the bubble to undergo a week-long quarantine in their hotel rooms. During this period, each person will be tested multiple times.

“The testing will continue as per BCCI’s guidelines throughout the tournament, similar to how it was conducted last season in the UAE,” KKR said on its website.

Individuals will only be allowed to step out of their rooms and start outdoor training and practice sessions upon testing negative.
