Indian skipper recovers from COVID-19; Practices with Ravichandran Ashwin

India’s captain Rohit Sharma is no longer in isolation after testing negative for Covid-19. He is now ready to play in the upcoming white-ball series against England, which begins with the first T20I in Southampton on July 7.

โ€œYes, Rohit has tested negative and as per medical protocols is now out of quarantine. However, he is not playing todayโ€™s T20 warm-up game against Northamptonshire as he will need some recovery time and training ahead of the first T20I,โ€ PTI was told by a senior BCCI official.

Rohit was not permitted to play in the current rescheduled fifth Test against England after testing positive during the four-day warm-up game against Leicestershire.

While witnessing the Edgbaston Test match on July 4, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) posted a video of the Indian captain commencing net practise. The internet quickly became widespread with a video of veteran spinner Ravichandran Ashwin bowling to Rohit in a truly fantastic match on the training ground.
