KKR will tackle defending champions Mumbai Indians on September 23. The IPL 2020 is going down within the United Arab Emirates (UAE) because it needed to be moved out of India as a result of Covid-19 pandemic.

Morgan and Cummins, who was roped in by KKR for whopping Rs 15.50 crores, might be seen towards one another within the three ODIs beginning Friday (September 11) on the Old Trafford. The England-Australia ODI collection will wrap up on September 16, three days earlier than IPL 2020 begins within the UAE.

KKR CEO Venky Mysore stated KKR have negotiated a lowered, six-day quarantine in Abu Dhabi from the standard 14 days which suggests Morgan, Cummins and Tom Banton can play the primary recreation on September 23.

“While they are still negotiating with the authorities, we are reconciled to the fact that we may have to quarantine our three players,” Mysore was quoted as saying by ESPNcricinfo.

“They arrive on September 17, but our first game is on September 23, by which time they would’ve finished their (six-day) quarantine. So it’s worked out well, and it’s good for the tournament.”

Mysore added that gamers arriving within the IPL ‘bubble’ from one other bio-secure cowl, such because the England and Australia ODI collection or the Caribbean Premier League (CPL 2020), is not going to be anticipated to endure the tournament-mandated quarantine.

“What we did was put a plan together and shared it with the medical team at the IPL,” Mysore stated.

“We instructed them, ‘they’re in a bio-secure bubble in UK. What if we introduced them on a sanitised constitution flight and we took care of all the weather of immigration, testing, contactless stuff and every part to permit them to return proper right into a bubble right here?’

“To give credit score to IPL, they took it very constructively and so they have a written Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for that, which says should you’re coming from a bubble to a different bubble, you do not want the necessary quarantine interval,” he added.
