All the members of the Indian women’s cricket team have taken the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine prior to their upcoming away series against England which is all set to begin on June 16. However, the Indian team is currently undergoing the mandatory quarantine period in Mumbai and they will start their England tour with a one-off Test in Bristol from June 16 as well. After that, they will play three ODIs and as many T20Is as well.
“All the players of the women’s team have got their first dose of vaccination. Most of them got it in their respective cities, while a few who didn’t, got their first jabs on Thursday,” a BCCI source said.
Meanwhile, all-rounder Deepti Sharma on Thursday shared a picture on Twitter where she can be seen taking the jab as well.
“Though I am a little scared of needles, but I still got myself vaccinated today. I urge people to please get vaccinated as soon as they can! #GotTheDose #We4Vaccine #CovidVaccine,” she had tweeted.
