Team India’s regular captain Rohit Sharma came under the grip of Kovid-19 before the 5th reschedule match between India and England at Edgbaston. He was out of this test only due to exposure to this epidemic. In place of Rohit, Jasprit Bumrah has been given the command against England. In the midst of the Test match, it has now come to the news that Rohit Sharma has joined the Indian team after beating the corona virus and he will be available for the T20 series against England starting from July 7.
A senior BCCI official told PTI, “Yes, Rohit has tested negative and as per medical protocol is now out of quarantine. However, he is not playing today’s T20 warm-up game against Northamptonshire as he has to be played earlier. Will need some recovery time and training before T20Is.”
Rohit was found to be Kovid positive thrice before the test match.
