Abu Dhabi: After landing in the UAE to join the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) squad ahead of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020, Afghanistan stars Mohammad Nabi and Rashid Khan have said that they will focus on fitness during their mandatory six-day quarantine.

Nabi and Rashid are coming from the Caribbean islands as they were representing St. Lucia Zouks and Barbados Tridents in the now concluded Caribbean Premier League (CPL).

Both Rashid and Nabi will now be confined to their hotel room for six days as they undergo quarantine as a precautionary measure against the Coronavirus. If the players return with three negative COVID-19 tests in this time frame, then they will join their teammates in training ahead of the tournament.

All players and team personnel are required to undergo a six-day quarantine period after landing in the UAE and everyone needs to be tested for COVID-19 thrice. Once, they all test negative for COVID-19, the players can start training in the UAE with their teammates.

The IPL 2020 will be played from Sept. 19 to Nov. 10 in the UAE across three venues — Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and Sharjah.

Mumbai Indians (MI) will face off against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the tournament opener on Sept. 19 in Abu Dhabi. SRH will take on Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in their first match of the tournament on Sept. 21.
