Due to this, England had to select a whole new squad headed by Ben Stokes for the upcoming one-day series against Pakistan. The Indian players will be assembled in London on July 14, from where they will travel to Durham for a two-week warm-up and first-class match against County XI. A senior official of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) told PTI on condition of anonymity, “We are aware of the situation. If there are any changes in the existing health care guidelines, the ECB (England and Wales Cricket Board) and local health authorities will make them available and strictly adhered to.

“But we have not been informed yet. Players are not asked to end their breaks. Most players now live in or around London and spend time with their families. Some have even gone to rural areas. Players can be re-examined after being assembled in London, and only then can they be allowed access to a bio-safe environment. There has been an increase in delta-3 cases in England. Not all players in England’s original ODI squad have been completely vaccinated.
