After testing negative for Covid-19, India’s skipper Rohit Sharma is free from isolation and is now available for the white-ball series against England, which starts with the first T20I in Southampton on July 7.
After testing positive during the four-day warm-up match against Leicestershire, Rohit was excluded from the ongoing rescheduled fifth Test against England.
“Yes, Rohit has tested negative and as per medical protocols is now out of quarantine. However, he is not playing today’s T20 warm-up game against Northamptonshire as he will need some recovery time and training ahead of the first T20I,” PTI was told by a senior BCCI official.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) tweeted a video of the Indian skipper beginning net practise while witnessing the Edgbaston Test match on Monday, July 4. A video of seasoned spinner Ravichandran Ashwin bowling to Rohit in a genuinely spectacular match on the practise field swiftly went popular on the internet.
