BCCI, an official said although the bubble-to-bubble transfer is happening for CPL 2021. However, the same is yet to be approved by the UAE authorities for the contingent coming from Sri Lanka. Moreover, he said that there will be clarity on the matter by tonight before the players take the charter flight from Colombo. As for players in the CPL 2021 including Tim David (RCB) and Faf du Plessis (CSK), Imran Tahir(CSK). Also along with West Indies players will be joining teams' bio-bubble directly as St Lucia is not on the red-list.

What the source said to ANI about IPL 2021 quarantine rules :

"The players coming in from the bubbles in CPL and from the SA-SL series will undergo two days of isolation. They will come in and go into their rooms on the first day, they will then get tested the next day and once the results come in, they will join the squad members in the bubble,"

The confusion was regarding Sri Lanka's Covid status in UAE. Although BCCI had convinced UAE authorities on bubble-to-bubble transfers without needing to go through quarantine. Since Sri Lanka is still on the UAE's red-list, the plan didn't materialise. Instead, the players, who are fully vaccinated will now need to self-isolate for two days. And they will be available from the first match.
