If any individual tests positive, he will go into a 14-day quarantine after which he will be required to undergo two more RT-PCR tests within a day

Indian players and support staff will have to return negative for Covid-19 at least five times before they start training in the UAE and subsequently will be tested every fifth day during the IPL, according to a draft prepared by the BCCI.

According to a BCCI official, all Indian players and support staff will have to undergo two Covid-19 RT-PCR tests, 24 hours apart, a week before joining the 14-day quarantine period with their respective teams in India.

If any individual tests positive, he will go into a 14-day quarantine after which he will be required to undergo two more Covid-19 RT-PCR tests within a space of 24 hours. If they come negative, that person will be cleared to fly to UAE for the IPL.

“Following their arrival in the UAE, the players and support staff will have to return at least three negative tests during a week’s quarantine and if they are negative, they can enter the bio-bubble and start training,” the official said.

The players and support staff will be tested on Days I,  III and VI of their quarantine in the UAE and after clearing that, they will be tested every fifth day during the competition.
