World Test Championship final: Britain imposes travel ban on India, yet ICC confident about final

Following the UK’s ban on travel from India on Monday, the World Test Championship final to be played here from 18 June to 22 June this year has also raised doubts. However, the International Cricket Council (ICC) has said that in June, the final of the Test Championship between India and New Zealand will be played in Southampton as planned. Also, the ICC has said that, following the rules of safe bio bubble, this final match will be organized.

Let me tell you that in view of the increasing cases of Corona in India, Britain has put it in the ‘Red List’, under which non-UK and Irish citizens from India will be banned from the UK. Also, it has been made mandatory for Britons returning from abroad to stay in a quarantine for 10 days in a hotel.

What did the ICC say in its statement

The ICC said in a statement released on Twitter, “We are discussing with the UK government about the organization of the World Test Championship final. We will talk to the countries in the Red List that it will have an impact on the event. Along with the ECB, other ICC member countries have successfully organized cricket many times during this epidemic. We sincerely hope that we too will be able to do so and the final of the Test Championship will be held in June as per the pre-determined schedule. “
