The officer said, ‘The rooms are very small. You can’t do much training in it. Although there are no security personnel deployed there as was the case with the players in Britain but still the segregation is very strict.
He said, ‘However, the food that is being given is fine and the food menu is changing every day. But two weeks will be very challenging. Players in Britain were allowed to practice in the first week of isolation as they had spent two weeks in isolation in Mumbai.
The women’s team arrived in Brisbane on Monday to play three ODIs, one day-night Test and three T20 Internationals. The schedule also changed due to restrictions related to Kovid-19 in Sydney, Perth and Melbourne. All matches will now be played in Queensland and the series will begin on 21 September after a two-day delay.
