Team India to fly directly from Dubai to Australia:

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is looking to fly the entire contingent from bubble to bubble. Those players who are selected for tour and are not a part of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 campaign in UAE, will be called up and quarantined in Dubai before being assembled with the rest of the players for the flight to Australia.

A total of 25 member-team is expected to be picked by the BCCI selection committee fo the tour Down Under. The biggest challenge as of now is to get players the permission to train during the 14-day quarantine period as the first match will be played on November 26 while the IPL final is on November 10.
