Rohit Sharma has tested positive for Covid-19 according to the consequence of a Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) led on Saturday (June 25). A BCCI discharge expressed that the Indian commander has been set under separation and a RT-PCR test has been booked for Sunday to affirm and determine the seriousness of the pollution.
Rohit was associated with India's continuous visit against Leicestershire, but didn't bat on Day 3 of India's subsequent innings. He opened the batting in the main dig and made 25 preceding being excused by Roman Walker.
He currently faces a test of skill and endurance to make the rescheduled Test against England at Edgbaston that begins on July 1. India are as of now without their other customary opener, KL Rahul, who is down with a crotch injury.
Rohit was India's best batsman in the north of four Tests last year before the last Test had to be rescheduled because of Covid-19 worries in the Indian camp. He totaled 368 runs at a normal of 52.27 including 100 at The Oval. India lead the series 2-1 and have to keep away from a rout in the last Test to secure their most memorable Test series win in England starting around 2007.
Rohit is at present the most elevated scorer for India in the series, with 368 runs in four matches at an amazing normal of 52.27. In the event that Rohit Sharma neglects to recuperate in time for the fifth Test, India will take the field without both of their best option openers as KL Rahul has proactively been managed out of the series with a physical issue. There could be no other assigned opener in India's Test crew with the exception of Shubman Gill and in the event that Rohit is sure to miss the Edgbaston Test, there are areas of strength for a Hanuma Vihari opening. Vihari had previously opened for India in the 2019 Sydney Test against Australia, where he dulled the new ball scoring 8 of 60-odd conveyances.
This is the second instance of Covid-19 being ejected into the Indian camp on the visit to England. Last week, India spinner R Ashwin failed to catch the plane to the UK after he returned a positive Test. Ashwin arrived in Leicestershire later yet didn't partake in the multi-day practice match in spite of the fact that he was seen going through the speeds and bowling in the nets. Reports had additionally drifted proposing Virat Kohli was also in a covid positive after arriving at England yet had recuperated despite the fact that no authority declaration was made either by BCCI or Kohli himself.
Group India is right now playing the warm-facing Leicestershire. On Day 3 on Sunday, they delivered superior batting execution with Shreyas lyer (62), Ravindra Jadeja (56*), and Virat Kohli (67) hammering half-hundreds of years. With Jadeja, Mohammed Siraj (1*) stayed unbeaten toward the end of the day's play.
