India vs England: Team Virat will play 2 practice matches

India vs England: According to BCCI sources, the tour schedule was made keeping in mind the Covid-19 protocol. Keeping the county team in India’s bio-bubble was a difficult task. The ECB is very cautious about the safety of the players. The bio-bubble of the Indian team will be prepared in Durham.

The Indian management is not ready to take any further risk after being criticized after the 8-wicket loss against New Zealand in the World Test Championship Final (WTC Final) on Wednesday. And now the BCCI also wants to give the team all that the management is asking for. In this episode, the Indian team will play two practice matches against England before August 4. But make it clear that both these matches will not be played with any county team, but will play two intra-practice matches among themselves.

Now the news is coming that now Team India will gather 15 first in Durham to prepare for the five-Test matches. Here the team will play two intra-practice matches before leaving for Nottingham. Earlier, before the final, the BCCI was in touch with the host board regarding the practice match against the two county teams. But according to the ECB statement, this could not happen due to Covid-19 and bio-bubble rules.

The source said that initially, the warm-up matches were not part of the plan. It is worth noting that it was said that before the WTC Final, he had requested the BCCI for a practice match, but the matches were not given to him. Don’t make it dependent on us. We wanted first-class matches, but we were not given matches. I don’t know the reason for this.
