Deepak could stay away from home for a longer period as he could be named in the Indian squad for the white-ball series against Australia which happens after the T20 tournament.
Deepak’s brother Rahul – who is a part of the Mumbai Indians franchise would also join his team soon in the financial capital – where the quarantining of the players has already started.
IPL 13 is scheduled to start from September 19 and the final would take place on November 10. Three venues would be used throughout the 51-day period to minimise the travel for players amid the pandemic. As per the rules, after landing in the UAE, all the players have to undergo a seven-day quarantine period.
