New Delhi. Immediately after the T20 World Cup 2021, Team India has to play a three-match T20 series and a 2-match Test series against New Zealand. There are reports that Indian senior players may be rested during the T20 series against New Zealand, which starts less than a week after the World Cup final. Top Indian players such as skipper Virat Kohli, vice-captain Rohit Sharma and pacer Jasprit Bumrah have been living in a ‘bio-bubble’ since the start of the World Test Championship in Southampton in June. Out of this, the biologically safe environment in England was much less restricted, which led to the cancellation of the fifth Test in Manchester due to the arrival of Kovid-19 cases in the Indian camp.
