Rishabh Pant tests positive for Covid-19 in England, quarantined

Indian wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant has tested positive for Covid -19 virus in England and is staying in home isolation at the moment. Pant is home quarantined at his relatives’ place at present and is likely to join the tour party in Durham later.

The Indian squad sans Pant will return to bio-bubble in Durham on Thursday.

Sources said the left-hander 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.

On Wednesday, chief selector Chetan Sharma met BCCI president Sourav Ganguly in Kolkata, but both were tight-lipped about what transpired in the meeting.
