Team India has received some bad news ahead of the ODI series against South Africa, which begins on January 19. Washington Sundar, an Indian all-rounder, has tested positive for Kovid-19 and is unlikely to play in the three-match ODI series against South Africa, which begins on January 19.
Team India has received some bad news.
The 22-year-old Tamil Nadu cricketer tested positive for COVID-19 in Bengaluru and is not linked to any other limited-overs cricketers in Mumbai, who are due to fly to South Africa in a few days. “Washington has tested positive for COVID-19, but has not been linked to the ODI players in Mumbai so far,” BCCI sources said. When he was discovered positive, he was in Bengaluru (NCA).
Corona, a key player, is optimistic ahead of the ODI series.
Washington will not be able to board the chartered plane with the other players selected for the ODI series, and it is unknown whether the BCCI will send them to South Africa separately later. The ODI series against South Africa will begin in Paarl on January 19. The second ODI will be played on January 21 in Paarl, with the final match taking place in Cape Town.
Sundar hasn’t played for Team India in a long time.
Washington, who was unable to participate in last year’s tour of England due to injury, returned to domestic cricket and performed admirably for his state team in the Vijay Hazare Trophy, in which Tamil Nadu advanced to the final.
