Virat Kohli and Siraj were in Manchester for the fifth Test match against England which was cancelled on Friday following Covid outbreak in the Indian team contingent.
RCB were third on the points table behind Delhi Capitals and Chennai Super Kings before the IPL 2021 was postponed after several franchises reported positive Covid cases inside the bio-secure bubble.
RCB will begin their UAE leg of the tournament against Kolkata Knight Riders at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on September 20.
