8 players identified as close contacts of Covid-positive Krunal Pandya test negative

  • India's rescheduled 2nd T20 vs Sri Lanka to go ahead as planned on Wednesday
  • Suryakumar Yadav & Prithvi Shaw's England departure may face delay

In a big relief for the Indian team in Sri Lanka, all other players who came in close contact with Krunal Pandya have tested negative for Covid-19. 

BCCI had confirmed that 8 players, apart from Krunal, were identified as close contacts and underwent RT-PCR tests and fortunately, all other players from India and Sri Lanka returned negative results. So, the second T20I, which was rescheduled to Wednesday, will go ahead as planned. 

However, Suryakumar Yadav and Prithvi Shaw who were supposed to join Virat Kohli-led Team India in England, might not be able to depart at the stipulated time. The duo is likely to be available ahead of the 3rd Test due to quarantine norms.
