The Indian cricket team, touring in England, has been hit by COVID-19 scare as a member has tested positive for the coronavirus.
While the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) remained tight-lipped on the issue, several sources have confirmed to Sportstar that the young cricketer showed symptoms a few days ago and was tested positive.
It is believed that the cricketer is currently isolating in London and won’t travel to Durham – where India will play a tour game against Select County XI, starting July 20.
“The other members and support staff have tested negative so far. Since the players were on their own for the last few weeks, there is no question of anyone coming in close contact with the said player. So, there are no changes in plan for the Indian team,” a senior Board source told this publication.
