The Board of Control for Cricket in India’s (BCCI) medical team has been monitoring the COVID-19 scene closely ahead of the ODI series against South Africa.

All the players, support staff, and state associations have been told about the standard guidelines issued by WHO and the Ministry of Health & Welfare (Government of India).

In a report on the official BCCI website, the team has been instructed to follow a list enumerating some essential dos and don'ts, like washing hands with soap and water for a minimum of 20 seconds, covering mouth while sneezing or coughing, reporting a fever or cough immediately, avoiding eating out too often, and avoiding close contact with fans and other individuals from outside the team.

In addition to that, the Men in Blue have been briefed to not handle fans’ phones for selfies.
