ECB on bio-bubble: ecb clears that strict bio bubble will not prepare for india england test
- ECB will not use hard bio-bubble in the test series between India and England
- The chief executive of the ECB said that we have to learn to live with Corona
- Kovid-19 cases have been found in the Indian camp in England
London: ECB chief executive Tom Harrison said on Thursday that a strict bio-bubble will not be created before the Test series between India and England begins on August 4, despite cases of corona infection being found in both the teams.
Before the practice match in Durham, two cases of corona infection were found in the Indian team. On the other hand, England had to field a second-rate team in the series against Pakistan as many of its key players were found positive in the series against Sri Lanka. More than 42000 cases of corona infection were found in Britain on Wednesday.
Harrison said, ‘In dealing with Corona, the situation is different now than it was six months or a year ago. We are learning to live with it. Instead of creating a bio bubble for people, we are creating a safe environment.
He said, “The players are fed up with the bio bubble. This is affecting the mental health of the players. We have to learn to deal with Corona. Will have to live with it in the near future. We will strictly follow the protocol.
On 14 July, 43,302 confirmed cases were found in the UK. In addition, as of 7 July, the NHS has found 520,000 people in contact with COVID-19 positive people using the Track and Trace app. In such a case, those coming close to positive people have to be isolated for 10 days.
In England, Kovid-19 cases have increased rapidly in the last few weeks while there is relief in the country regarding restrictions. Despite the continuing rise in COVID-19 cases, Harrison said the well-being of England players meant the ECB would not re-enact last summer’s strict bio-secure bubble regime, which restricted their movement and freedom.
