Two cricketers were found to be corona virus positive in England. One of them is still in isolation. While one’s test has come negative. However, their names have not been revealed by the board. The board has said that the rest of the players are completely fine.
Corona has attacked the Indian cricket team in England. Two players of Team India were found positive from Kovid-19. Both players are fine at the moment. One player’s test has now come negative but the other is still in isolation. His test will be on 18 July.
Sources closely watching the matter say that both the players have no symptoms. When he was found to be Covid positive, he had mild symptoms of cough and cold.
“Luckily there is nothing to worry about as one player has tested negative and the other will be tested on Sunday,” the source said. That player is currently in isolation. He doesn’t have any symptoms. We are hopeful that he will join the camp after the report comes negative.
When asked about whether the rest of the players were also on holiday, so there is nothing to worry about, the source clarified that all the other players are completely fine and they are being regularly checked. He said, ‘At present, all is fine but we will keep checking them regularly and will strictly follow the rules. The safety of the players is our first priority.
Although the name of the player has not been disclosed by the Indian team management, it is believed that the player has been infected with the delta variant. This is an important reason for the increase in the cases of Kovid in the UK.
Meanwhile, there is news that BCCI secretary Jay Shah had written a letter instructing the players to stay away from crowded places. He said that Kovishield only provides protection and does not provide complete protection against the virus.
It is reported that Shah, in his letter, had instructed players to stay away from matches, especially Wimbledon and Euro Championship.
The Indian team will play a three-day practice match against the County Championship XI from July 20 to July 22. The England and Wales Cricket Board has done this on the request of BCCI.
The BCCI wanted the Indian team to play a practice match before the Test series to be held from August 4. However, it was not a practice match in the earlier schedule.
