Rishabh Pant Tests Positive For COVID-19 In England: Sources

Indian wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant tested positive for the COVID-19 in England.

A source told NDTV on Thursday that Indian wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant tested positive for the COVID-19 in England. Pant took a Covid test eight days ago and he is asymptomatic. The wicketkeeper will not travel to Durham with the Indian team squad, where the team will have a practice match before the five-game test series against England. Pant received his first dose of the Covid vaccine on May 13 and was recently seen at Wembley Stadium in London during the Euro 2020 match between England and Germany.

After the finals of the first World Test Championship played in Ageas Bowl, the players of the Indian team were rested for 20 days ahead of the five-match test series against England.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) vice president Rajiv Shukla said one player has been tested positive.

“Yes, one player has tested positive but he has been in isolation for the last eight days. He was not staying in any hotel with the team, so no other player has been affected,” BCCI Vice President Rajiv Shukla told PTI.

India tour for England Test series is scheduled to start next month, which will kick off the second cycle of the World Test Championship.
