KL Rahul tests Covid positive, will likely stay out of T20s against West Indies

Indian batsman KL Rahul on Thursday tested positive for Covid-19, informed BCCI president Sourav Ganguly after the Board’s Apex Council. 

Ganguly also said that a member of the Commonwealth Games-bound India women’s team was also down with Covid-19. He, however, did not disclose the name of the player.

Rahul’s positive report is likely to keep him out of the upcoming five-match T20 series against the West Indies, starting 29 July at Tarouba.

It was earlier announced that him and Kuldeep Yadav were picked in the 18-man squad subject to fitness.

The cricketer, who underwent a hernia operation in Germany recently, was rested for the ODI series against the West Indies starting Friday at Port of Spain.

India’s squad for five T20Is: Rohit Sharma (Captain), Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav, Deepak Hooda, Shreyas Iyer, Dinesh Karthik, Rishabh Pant, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, R Ashwin, Ravi Bishnoi, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Avesh Khan, Harshal Patel, Arshdeep Singh, KL Rahul*, Kuldeep Yadav*.

West Indies will host the Men in Blue for a three-match ODI series and a five-match T20i series from 22 July to 7 August.
