As it prepares for its impending tour of England, the Indian women’s cricket team has completed the first dosage of COVID-19 immunisation. Those members of the contingent who had not yet taken the first dosage of the vaccine received it on Thursday while in quarantine in Mumbai.
According to individuals familiar with the situation, the contingent received the first dosage of vaccination on Thursday, and the second dose will be provided by the UK health department when their turn for the second jab comes up. “The entire contingent is now done with the first dose of vaccination. There were quite a few left to get the first dose and that was completed on Thursday. All the girls have been given Covishield as that will help them get the second dose in England,” the source saved. The women’s squad will play England in a one-off Test, three One-Day Internationals, and three Twenty20 Internationals. Beginning June 16, the two sides will face the battle in a four-day Test match.
The teams will then face off in three One-Day Internationals (ODIs) beginning June 27 at Bristol, Taunton, and Worcester. Beginning on July 9, the two sides will compete in three T20Is, which will be held at Northampton, Hove, and Chelmsford.
Due to broadcasting concerns, the third T20I between England Women and India Women, which was scheduled for July 15, will now be played a day earlier on July 14 in Chelmsford. The second dose will be given to the Indian men’s team by the UK health department as well, as the guys will be flying to the UK on June 2 in a charter with the women’s squad.
