Holder and Rutherford were playing in the recently concluded Caribbean Premier League (CPL) and will just have to undergo a two-day quarantine before joining their team’s bio bubble, as specified by the country’s rules in regards to travel restrictions for different countries.

The bubble to bubble transfer also means that they do not have to quarantine for the same number of days.
