Guwahati: Two Indian players had tested positive for Covid-19 in England, according to a report in Indian Express.
Hours after the revelation that two Indian players tested COVID-19 positive, it has been reported that Rishabh Pant is the one who is infected by the contagion on Wednesday.
As per the PTI report, sources in BCCI claimed that the player in question is wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant.
“He (Pant) is in quarantine at an acquaintance’s place and won’t be traveling with the team to Durham on Thursday,” a BCCI source said.
The report further stated that he has been possibly afflicted by the Delta variant which has led to the rising number of cases in England.
In fact, Pant has been tested positive for over a week now and has been asymptomatic and recovering well.
Sources said that another player experienced a sore throat, which led to a Covid test and it returned positive. His teammates and support staff, who came in contact with the player, were kept in isolation for three days and they have completed their isolation period.
