Virat and Co. will have fairly less time to have enough match practise before the marquee final of the ICC World Test Championship while on the other hand, New Zealand will show up after playing two games against England. To counter this, the BCCI and ECB have jointly come to a conclusion to shorten the quarantine time period for the Indian team.

It is learnt that the quarantine time of 10 days has been reduced to just three. Indian cricketers will be allowed to train and have practice sessions from the fourth day onwards.

Interestingly, the fans will also be allowed into the stadiums for the final between India and New Zealand. Rod Bransgrove, the head of Hampshire County Club and ECB will be allowing around 4,000 fans for the final.
