Strict rules for players
Players will be allowed to enter the bio-secure bubble only if they come negative in the test after increased isolation. IPL players were following strict protocols and were not even allowed into each other’s rooms after their flight to India to ensure strict social distancing during the quarantine.
Most players had trouble with this protocol that they could not go to each other’s room even while in the bio-bubble. For this, they are not allowed at any time or even earlier in the tournament except for the quarantine period. They can only meet each other at the door of their room or in the given meeting area.
