Captain Kane Williamson, Kyle Jamieson and Mitchell Santner, who competed in the now suspended IPL, are in the Maldives and will fly to the UK from there. The trio had flown to Male from Delhi, a COVID-19 hotspot in India.

Star coach Trent Boult, who returned home after the IPL, could miss both matches against England.

India is expected to leave for the UK in the first week of June after completing a strict quarantine in Mumbai.
