On Wednesday, both the teams had their training sessions under the lights. Players of Rajasthan Royals trained on Thursday evening, maintaining all the social distancing norms and protocols.

The teams reached the Emirates last week and the players were tested on day 1, 3 and 6 as per the BCCI Standard Operating Procedure (SOP). After clearing the three tests, the players were allowed to resume training with ‘all precautions’.

While all the Indian players trained, Rajasthan Royals’ South African recruit, David Miller, will join the squad after completing his quarantine. He arrived only a couple of days ago. It’s a similar situation for Kings XI’s Hardus Viljoen.

The other teams, based in Dubai, are also expected to start training in a day or two, once all tests return negative. The IPL gets underway from September 19.
