Indian women's cricket team | GettyThe Indian women's cricket team, which will be touring England along with the men's side for their month-long series, will also serve a stern quarantine in Southampton rather than Bristol, where they are scheduled to play their one-off Test match.

Both the Indian teams are eagerly waiting for their complete quarantine routine from the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB).

"The Indian women's contingent is not moving to Bristol on landing. Instead, they will also be going to Southampton with the men's team and start their room quarantine. With ECB yet to send us the routine that we need to follow, the women's team will only leave for Bristol once the quarantine period in Southampton is over," a senior BCCI official privy to travel details told PTI on conditions of anonymity.

After arriving in UK, both the teams will be isolating at the Hilton Hotel, which is a part of the Hampshire Bowl Stadium property.

"We need to plan our training schedule and for that intimation about the duration of hard and soft quarantine period is very important. It is the ECB which will handover a complete chart starting from day one of our managed isolation," the official said.

According to PTI, the women's team will be putting up at the same hotel which is adjacent to the County ground in Bristol to ensure a safe bio-secure zone for the squad.

During the England tour, the Indian women’s team will play a four-day Test match followed by three ODIs and three T20Is. The tour will run from June 16 to July 15.
