After Corona cases, first in England, then in Sri Lanka, now Corona has hit the Indian cricket team. India’s wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant has been diagnosed with coronary artery disease. The pants tested positive for COVID-19 last week in isolation. He was eliminated from a practice match against County Select XI. Former England captain Michael Vaughan has expressed his concern after the news broke. Vaughan believes the Test series between India and England is in danger in such a situation. He was concerned about the 100 tournament.
Michael Vaughan tweeted, ‘Until the terms of separation change, I am afraid of India’s Test series and’ The Hundred ‘. As with what happened with Rishabh Pant, more such cases could come up. If the rules of bio-bubble and isolation don’t change, the Ashes will be greatly affected by the players’ departure. Rishabh Pant recently shared a picture on his Instagram, in which he is enjoying a Euro Cup match. Many Indian players are on holiday in England these days. Prior to this, 7 members of the England squad were found to be corona positive. England’s second record-breaking team was then selected for the ODI series against Pakistan.
I fear for the 100 and Indian test series unless separate laws are changed .. we have cases @RishabhaPant17 .. plus I think the Ashes may have more effect on the players coming out unless the bubbles / quadruple rules change!
