BCCI: Crickter Virat Kohli tested covid Possetive returning from Maldives

Given that Virat Kohli tested positive for COVID-19, the BCCI treasury has issued a warning.

Even before it began, India’s tour of England was having trouble. A few more athletes, including Virat Kohli, are rumoured to have tested positive for COVID-19. The former captain of India has overcome the infection, though.

However, the circumstance has made the team’s practise match against Leicestershire difficult.

Yes, Virat was also affected by Covid after returning from a vacation in the Maldives, but he has now recovered, a source told the media.

“Since the medical recommendation is to not overwhelm the players after they have suffered from Covid-19, the tour game between India and Leicestershire on June 24 won’t be as tough as coach Rahul Dravid had hoped. The source went on to say that there might be additional Covid cases on the team.

Covid-19 cases were discovered in the visitors’ camp during India’s tour of England the previous year, and even head coach Ravi Shastri tested positive for the virus. A repeat of the incident has been expected as the Indian team prepares for the England mission once more.

The then-head coach of India, Ravi Shastri, was present at the book launch event. Along with a few other players, even Virat Kohli was present at the ceremony. Shastri and a few members of the support crew became infected with the virus shortly after the even, and cases soon began to multiply in the Indian camp.

The BCCI made the decision to halt the series before the fifth Test was finished out of concern that things would get worse. A T20I and an ODI series will be played after the 5th Test, which has been postponed, at Edgbaston beginning on July 1.

Arun Dhumal, the treasurer of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), has urged the players to exercise all due caution since the organisation doesn’t want a repeat of the last incident, which led to the cancellation of the fifth and final Test of the series.

“In the UK, there is less of a Covid threat. But even so, athletes should exercise additional caution. We will ask the team to be a little careful,” Arun Dhumal, BCCI treasurer, told InsideSport.

Even though the BCCI hasn’t officially acknowledged any Covid-19 cases in the Indian camp, the series schedule may be adversely affected if the virus has in fact spread there.
