The Indian and England cricketers returned three negative tests for COVID-19 during their six-day quarantine period in Chennai, paving the way for the nets sessions from Tuesday.

 

The Indian team, who recently beat Australia in the four-Test series, had an outdoor training session on Monday.

The four-match Test series starts in Chennai from February 5, Friday, with the second match also to be played at the same venue from February 13.

"The Indian Cricket Team completed their quarantine period today in Chennai. Three RT-PCR tests for Covid-19 were conducted at regular intervals and all tests have returned negative results. The team will have their first outdoor session today from 5:00 PM and nets sessions will begin from tomorrow," BCCI said on Monday.

The England players also returned negative results from their COVID-19 tests and will resume training from Tuesday.

"All PCR tests from yesterday’s test have returned negative results. The England party are now out of quarantine and will train for the first time as a full group at the stadium tomorrow afternoon 2pm-5pm (IST)," the England and Wales Cricket Board said.
