Team India have received some bad news as spinners Yuzvendra Chahal and Krishnappa Gowtham have also tested positive for Covid-19.
Some days back, all-rounder Krunal Pandya had tested positive for Covid-19 and several players were asked to isolate. India played the final two T20 internationals against Sri Lanka with a depleted squad.
Speaking to ANI, sources in the know of developments confirmed that the duo have tested positive for COVID-19. "Unfortunately, they have tested positive. They were close contacts of Krunal and were already away from the rest of the squad in the team hotel," the source said.
Krunal Pandya tested positive for COVID-19 on Tuesday and eight Indian players -- Prithvi Shaw, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Yuzvendra Chahal, Deepak Chahar, Manish Pandey, Ishan Kishan, and K Gowtham were identified as close contacts.
Being close contacts of Krunal, they were staying away from the rest of the team and didn't participate in the last two T20Is after Krunal's test came positive.
