Virat Kohli had tested COVID-19 positive before arriving in England as reported by InsideSport. The threat of COVID-19 seems looming over the final and fifth rescheduled Test between England and India.
Kohli had gone to Maldives for a short vacation with wife Anushka Sharma and daughter Vamika.
“Yes, Virat too was hit by Covid after returning from holiday in Maldives, but he’s recovered now.”
ECB has confirmed that England team’s batting coach Marcus Trescothick is also down with the virus. England captain Ben Stokes is also feeling unwell.
The officials of the BCCI are unhappy with Virat and captain Rohit Sharma as despite all the suggestions they were seen meeting with fans without mask and social distancing.
“The Covid threat is reduced in the UK. But still players should be more careful. We will ask the team to be a little careful,” said Arun Dhumal BCCI treasurer to InsideSport.
