Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) captain Virat Kohli is set to join the camp on April 1 in Chennai. He will have to undergo mandatory quarantine before joining his teammates for training ahead of the IPL 2021.

As per reports of ANI, Kohli has left the bio-bubble for the three-match ODI series against England at Pune on Monday (March 29). Players who moved from one bio-secure bubble to another don't have to undergo quarantine.

BCCI is strict with the quarantine guidelines and as per their standard operating procedure (SOP), all players (except for those from the India-England series), support staff, and management entering the bubble need to undergo a seven-day quarantine in their hotel rooms.
