The Indian cricket team had landed in Southampton on June 3 and after that, every member of the touring contingent underwent three-day mandatory hard quarantine.
At the Hampshire Bowl, the players were tested again before commencing a period of managed isolation. Regular tests will be conducted during the period of isolation.
The Indian team is currently staying in the hotel facility at Southampton’s Rose Bowl Stadium.
Following the WTC final, the Indian team will face England in a five-match Test series starting August 4 in Nottingham.
India have traveled with an extended 20-member squad for WTC final and subsequent series against England keeping the COVID-19 pandemic in mind.
Another squad of Team India is expected to be announced next week for the limited-overs tour of Sri Lanka. India will take on the island nation in three ODIs and as many T20Is.
