Former India cricketer Rathinder Singh Sodhi has commented that India’s wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant’s visit to England was a positive one. He said players should be more responsible. Rishabh Pant and India throwdown specialist Dayanand Garani do not travel to Durham because they are corona positive. The rest of India have gathered in Durham to play a three-day warm-up game against County Select XI from July 20-22. Apart from the two, bowling coaches B Arun, Wriddhiman Saha and Abhimanyu Eshwaran have been kept separate from the London Hotel as they have close links with Garani.
Speaking to Sodhi India News, ‘We were thinking about the XI, which players are in good rhythm, but now there are no wicketkeepers. Hope KL Rahul doesn’t have to keep wicket. This is very sad because you want to take advantage of the first two games of the series, practice matches. You want to practice to score runs and play. But now there is a fear that no one else will be infected. Players will be on the middle rear foot, the two most unfortunate. Pant appeared in the Euro Cup match at Wembley Stadium.
Is Pant Corona positive after going to the dentist? The reason is revealed
When you go to a place with a lot of people without masks, you’re inviting trouble, Sodhi said. It’s an atmosphere of tension. You should avoid crowded places and wear a mask if necessary, as there is a lot of talk going on this day. If you’re going without a mask, there’s a lot of spectators out there, you’re inviting risk. This is very sad and the board has expressed its anger and this is absolutely right because players need to understand their responsibility. Now pray that everything is fine.
