India unlikely to get quarantine leniency in Australia

July 21 2020


The Indian players will have to undergo "regular testing" when they land in Australia, and the quarantine arrangements are currently under development.

Sourav Ganguly might not want the Indian players to "sit in their hotel rooms for two weeks" when they land in Australia later this year, but it turns out he is unlikely to get his way. It was last week that the BCCI president had spoken about Virat Kohli & Co hopefully having to quarantine for a shorter duration that mandated for everyone else if the Test tour does go ahead during the Australian summer. Cricket Australia's interim CEO, Nick Hockley, though clarified on Tuesday (July 21) that the "two-week quarantine" period was "well-defined" hinting that both the Indian and even the Australian cricketers, who might end up playing in the IPL if it happens, will have to enter a quarantine zone for 14 days once they enter the country. Hockley also revealed that it would be the CA's focus and responsibility however to make sure that the players aren't just cooped up in their rooms but are allowed to train while quarantining.

"The key thing for the players is that there's regular testing and that we appropriately quarantine them when they come in. What we are working on is making sure that even within that quarantine environment, the players have got the absolute best training facilities, so that their preparation for the matches is as optimal as it can possibly be and that certainly we are working through the very same with the ECB (if Australia's white-ball tour to England goes ahead) as well at the moment," he said.

"It is very, very depressing and disappointing. We are looking at that, the quarantine thing. And, as I said Australia and New Zealand have been in good position except Melbourne. So, from that point of view we will be going there and hopefully, the quarantine days will be less and we can get back to cricket," is what Ganguly had said on an India Today show.

Hockley also revealed that the Indian players will have to undergo "regular testing" when they land, and the quarantine arrangements were currently under development. CA meanwhile will also have to work with the Australian government to get "travel exemptions" to fly Kohli and his team into the country even as Covid-19 cases continue to multiply around India.

"We will need to get exemptions. It's widely known and it's unlikely that international travel restrictions would have lifted by the time that India will be due to come into the country. Clearly there will be testing regimes. We will be able to test people before that they get on to the plane and it is the nature of the situation of making sure we have the quarantine arrangements on time with government and health authority protocol," he added.

CA have been monitoring the protocols that the ECB had put in place for the West Indian and Pakistan teams when they landed in England. While Jason Holder & Co have since also gone ahead and played the first two Tests of their three-match series against the hosts, the Pakistanis are done with their quarantine and have already started preparing with intra-team practice games. And Hockley drew parallels between the facilities on offer at the two Test venues being used this English summer, Southampton and Manchester, and the Adelaide Oval which will have a plush hotel as part of its complex by September. And Adelaide could very likely end up as the first port of arrival for the Indian team in November.

"Whether it's a hotel on-site or hotels in close proximity to venues, it's certainly about creating that environment where we are minimising risk of infections and creating a biosecure environment is the absolute priority. There's a huge amount at stake if we are unable to do that. Certainly, the fact that the Adelaide Oval has a hotel, we're obviously in discussion with all venues. It does provide a facility not dissimilar to Old Trafford or Ageas Bowl where the hotels are integrated into venue," he said.

Hockley admitted that he was addressing the media donning two hats, as the interim CA CEO as well as the chief organiser of the now-postponed men's T20 WC. And on a day the world event was put off by at least a year, he said that Australia would be prepared to make it a "fantastic" tournament regardless of whether they got their turn to play hosts in 2021 or 2022.

"If it's '21, then the plans are really, really well progressed so we're really well-placed to deliver that event. If it's 2022, it gives a little more time to create even more certainty around the health situation because I think no one knows how long this is going to last," he said.

IPL 2020 set to be played in UAE
July 21 2020

The Board of Control for Cricket in India has zeroed in on UAE as the venue for the upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League, IPL chairman Brijesh Patel confirmed to Cricbuzz, on Tuesday (July 21). The board has written to the government seeking permission to hold the tournament in UAE and are awaiting the go-ahead.

"We have written to the government seeking permission to host the tournament in UAE," Patel told Cricbuzz. "The dates have not been finalised as yet and will be decided at the (next) IPL GC, which will be held in the next seven or ten days."

IPL, which was scheduled to begin in late March 2020 was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. BCCI looked at several alternatives in a bid to host it later in the year in India. Boards from several countries - Sri Lanka, New Zealand ad UAE, among other offered to host the tournament. Last month, the Emirates Cricket Board had offered to host the tournament in UAE, stating that they had the required infrastructure for it.

Patel has insisted that the option of hosting the tournament in India hasn't been eliminated as yet. The decision will be taken in the upcoming IPL Governing Council meeting.

Rajat Bhatia Retired

Rajat Bhatia calls time on professional playing career

July 29 2020

Rajat Bhatia last played in the IPL for Rising Pune Supergiant in 2017

Rajat Bhatia, a veteran in Indian domestic cricket, has called it quits from all forms of the game to bring down the curtains on a career spanning 20 years.

The Delhi-born Bhatia began life in the domestic circuit at the other end of the country - with Tamil Nadu. After spending two seasons there, he was picked by his home state, whom he represented until 2015, before having short stints at Rajasthan and Uttarakhand. Of the 112 Ranji appearances in all, 81 of them have come for Delhi where he's scored 4666 runs and picked 96 wickets. He now walks away from the game with a total tally of 6482 runs and 137 wickets.

Despite consistency in the domestic set up, Bhatia couldn't quite make the jump up to the highest level as an allrounder. He though was a vital cog in Delhi's Ranji Trophy victory in 2007 - their first title since the 1991-92 season - when he scored 512 runs in seven outings.

Bhatia's slow medium pace proved to be a slippery slope for batsmen in the IPL too, as he featured in every single season from the inaugural IPL until the 2017 edition.

He turned out for his home franchise - Delhi Daredevils - for three seasons, but his best returns came under a revamped Kolkata Knight Riders side under Gautam Gambhir. He picked 13 wickets in the 2012 season when KKR bagged their first IPL title, and then bagged a big pay day in the player auction before the 2014 season when Rajasthan Royals paid INR 1.7 crore for his services. Bhatia repaid the faith by picking 12 wickets in as many fixtures in a season when Rajasthan Royals missed out qualification to the knockouts by a whisker.

Bhatia's batting returns in the IPL were lowly - with a season-best of 99 in 2013 and a total of 342 - but life with the bat in the domestic circuit proved to reap better dividends for him. He signs off with a first-class average of 49.10, with 17 centuries and 30 fifties to his name, while also having scored 3038 runs in 119 List A games, with 3 100s and 19 50s, at an average of 41.05.

The Super Kings, before their arrival in the UAE, had held a five-day training camp in Chennai.
The Super Kings, before their arrival in the UAE, had held a five-day training camp in Chennai.
Multiple members of Chennai Super Kings have tested positive for COVID-19, although the exact numbers are to be confirmed. Cricbuzz understands that it includes one India player as well as members of the support/coaching staff.

The team landed in Dubai on August 21 and upon completion of the mandatory six-day quarantine, were supposed to start training from Friday (August 28). However, with the new development, they have extended their quarantine period. Some of the teams have already started training while the others are set to begin soon, with the exception of CSK.

As per the Standard Operating Procedures that need to be followed during the IPL, all persons associated with the tournament would undergo a test upon arrival in the UAE. This would be followed by tests on days 1, 3 and 5 of their quarantine period at the team hotel, and only after testing negative in all three would the players be allowed to train.

The Super Kings, before their arrival in the UAE, had held a five-day training camp in Chennai. MS Dhoni, Suresh Raina, Deepak Chahar, Ambati Rayudu, Piyush Chawla and Shardul Thakur were all part of the camp, as was bowling coach L Balaji.
