Earlier on Sunday, RCB captain Virat Kohli and pacemaker Mohammed Siraj, who were on national duties in England, arrived in Dubai for the second leg of IPL 2021. The two Indian starts will be isolated for six days before to enter the bio-bubble of the equipment.
After 29 league matches, IPL 2021 was suspended on May 4 due to the Covid-19 situation in India and several positive Covid cases in Delhi Capitals (DC), Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) camp. Subsequently, the BCCI made the decision to move the remaining matches to the United Arab Emirates.
The second leg will start on September 19 and RCB will play their first match of the renewed season against KKR on September 20.
