IPL 2021: RCB to fly Virat Kohli, Mohammed Siraj to UAE on charter flight

Virat Kohli and Mohammed Siraj will reach UAE for the second leg of the Indian Premier League (IPL) on a charter flight from London.

The duo will reach Dubai on Sunday morning on a flight arranged by their franchise Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB).

“Keeping the safety and security of our players as the utmost priority, Royal Challengers Bangalore have arranged a special charter flight for captain Virat Kohli and Mohammed Siraj to ensure their safe transit to the UAE,” said RCB in a statement on Saturday.

“The players will be flying out at 11.30 PM (UK time) on Saturday and will arrive in Dubai early Sunday morning. Both, Virat and Siraj will undergo 6-day quarantine in Dubai before joining the team bio-secure bubble,” added RCB.

The fifth and final Test between India and England, which was scheduled to begin on Friday, was canceled due to the emergence of a Covid-19 case in the Indian camp.
