As reported earlier by Sportstar, the BCCI has identified five venues in Mumbai for training — the Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) ground in Bandra-Kurla Complex, the Brabourne Stadium at the Cricket Club of India, DY Patil Stadium, the Reliance Corporate Park in Navi Mumbai and the MCA ground in Thane.

The teams will be in separate hotels and to ensure that the bio-bubble environment is maintained, there will be dedicated areas for the teams. A green corridor will be created for the teams to ensure a ‘safe passage and smooth movement’ for matches and practice.

The teams are expected to reach Mumbai by March 9 and after quarantine, the training sessions should begin by March 15.

25 per cent fans allowed

The Maharashtra government has allowed 25 per cent spectators for the league stage. Last week, the BCCI Governing Council was optimistic about allowing about 50 per cent fans, keeping state protocols in mind. However, in the initial phase, a 25 per cent capacity will be allowed.
