Team India’s premium spinner in test cricket, Ravichandran Ashwin has tested COVID positive. Therefore, unfortunately, he could not take the flight to England where Team India will play its fifth test starting on July 1st.
Ashwin is currently in quarantine and will only join the squad after meeting all protocol requirements. The Indian team had left for the UK on June 16. “Ashwin hasn’t traveled with the squad to the UK as he has tested positive for Covid 19 before departure. But we are hopeful that he will recover well in time before the Test match starts on July 1,” a BCCI source told PTI on conditions of anonymity.
“However he might miss the practice game against Leicestershire,” the source added. The rest of the squad is already in Leicester and started training under the supervision of bowling coach Paras Mhambrey and batting coach Vikram Rathour.
