Pant is not going to be becoming a member of the workforce within the camp in Durham that begins on Thursday. The Indian workforce was not scheduled to play any warm-up in opposition to any county workforce because of the ongoing pandemic.
However, BCCI’s request for a warm-up recreation following the dismal present in WTC closing is being mulled over by the ECB. It shall be attention-grabbing to see if the ECB organises a warm-up recreation in opposition to a county XI and whether or not they take any measures for it.
