On the other hand, New Zealand are already involved in a two-match series against England.

The India squad was in quarantine for 14 days in Mumbai prior to its departure and is in the middle of another yet shorter quarantine.

“I had a good sleep…the plan is to quarantine. We have been told that we can’t meet each other for three days so we will be quarantining for that much time,” said Axar in a video posted by BCCI capturing the team’s journey to England via a charter flight.

The men’s and women’s squads were in the same flight.

After landing in London, the contingent took a two-hour bus journey to Southampton.
