Wanted to post about this yesterday.
Didn't know about this tbh! For obvious reasons Saha is our back up for Pant. Feel annoyed that we did not give opportunities to Srikar Bharat earlier.Pant will definitely not play the first test which I know is sometime away now that he has contacted the virus. Hope he recovers soon. Blessing in disguise for Saha?
Other 18 members are going to Durham for a warm up Test. I think possibly some young players would've contracted the virus along with Pant. Probably Kohli, Rohit & Rahane would've taken more precautions since they have brought along their kids on this tour who need strict protection to be safe from the virus.And it begins.. support staff tests positive as well.
Bowling coach B Arun, Wriddhiman Saha and Abhimanyu Easwaran identified as his close contacts, and asked to quarantine in London for ten dayswww.espncricinfo.com
