"The Museum & Stadium Tour is now open with a range of new measures designed to make the most of your experience at Old Trafford, while protecting both visitors and staff," said the club.

Meanwhile, it's worth noting that the United Kingdom has eased travel restrictions for fully vaccinated Indians who have received a UK-approved jab.

MI finished the league stage fifth, losing the final play-off spot to Kolkata Knight Riders on net run rate.

The 27-year-old will soon return to action, leading India's attack in the ICC T20 World Cup. Virat Kohli & Co start their campaign with a clash against arch-rivals Pakistan on October 24 in Dubai.
