Ravi Shastri, and including three other support staff members, tests Covid positive.
The BCCI has said that Indian cricket team head coach Ravi Shastri had tested positive for Covid-19 in a lateral flow test. Shastri and three other support staff members have been placed in isolation "as a precautionary measure," as per BCCI. Bowling coach Bharat Arun, fielding coach R Sridhar, and physiotherapist Nitin Patel are the other members in isolation. "They have undergone RT-PCR testing and shall remain in the team hotel and not travel with Team India until confirmation from the medical team," the press release revealed.
"The remaining members of the Team India contingent underwent two Lateral Flow Tests - one last night and another this morning. The members upon returning negative COVID reports were allowed to proceed for Day 4 of the ongoing fourth Test at The Oval," added the release.
India resumed Day 4 of the Oval Test on Sunday with a score of 270/3 and a 171-run lead. Skipper Virat Kohli and all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja were at the crease. The visitors were bowled out for 191 in their first innings, and England replied with 290 to grab a 99-run lead.
In the second innings, India fought back, with opener Rohit Sharma hitting his first overseas Test century on Saturday. On Day 3, India dominated the proceedings thanks to Rohit Sharma's 127 and Cheteshwar Pujara's 61. On Saturday, Ollie Robinson dismissed both Rohit and Pujara in the final session, but England's bowlers had a frustrating day overall. On the penultimate day of the Oval Test, India would be trying to take a big lead.
