Mumbai. One of the 23 Indian cricketers in the continuous visit through England has tried positive for COVID-19 during the 20-sunrise and won't head out with the group to Durham on Thursday.
The news comes in the wake of BCCI secretary Jay Shah as of late sending an email to the Indian unforeseen in the United Kingdom cautioning it about the rising instances of COVID-19. The side is to reassemble at Durham in a bio-bubble in front of the Test series against England one month from now.
"Indeed, one of the players has tried positive despite the fact that he is generally asymptomatic presently. He is in isolate at an associate's place and will not be venturing out with the group to Durham on Thursday," a BCCI source told PTI on states of namelessness.
While the visiting party in the UK is quiet about the name of the player, it is perceived that he has been burdened by the Delta variation which has prompted rising number of cases there.
Shah, in his letter, advised the players to "keep away from" swarmed puts as Covishield just gives security, not full invulnerability against the infection.
Truth be told, Shah's letter had explicitly expressed that players ought to try not to go to Wimbledon and Euro Championships, which as of late finished up there.
The Indian group is because of take on England in a five-match Test series beginning August 4.
