COVID-19
positive,
5th
Test
at
Old
Trafford,
IPL
2021
resumption
under
threat

Head
coach
Ravi
Shastri
and
bowling
coach
Bharath
Arun
had
already
tested
positive
and
had
not
travelled
with
the
side
for
the
fourth
Test.
But
with
Parmar
testing
positive
on
Thursday,
the
team’s
training
was
cancelled
and
another
round
of
tests
had
to
be
carried
out.

The
RT-PCR
results
for
the
players
are
awaited
and
then
a
final
decision
will
be
taken.
Talking
about
the
fate
of
the
final
Test,
Ganguly
at
the
book
launch
of
‘Mission
Domination’ in
Kolkata,
said,
“We
don’t
know
if
the
match
will
happen
at
the
moment.
Hopefully
we
can
get
some
game.”

As
per
reports
there’s
speculation
that
the
England
and
Wales
Cricket
Board
(ECB)
has
proposed
that
India
forfeit
the
match
in
case
the
reports
of
the
players
come
out
positive.
However,
India
have
turned
down
the
idea.

Parmar
testing
positive
also
leaves
the
team
without
a
physio
with
the
main
physio
Nitin
Patel
already
in
isolation
after
Shastri
contracted
the
virus
during
the
Oval
Test.
It
is
learnt
that
the
BCCI
has
asked
England
and
Wales
Cricket
Board
to
spare
a
physio.

“The
results
of
the
RT-PCR
tests
(of
players)
are
expected
later
in
the
day
depending
on
which
the
fate
of
the
game
will
be
decided,”
PTI
quoted
a
BCCI
source.

Meanwhile,
the
players
have
been
told
to
remain
in
their
respective
rooms
as
RT-PCR
testing
is
being
carried
out.
Besides
Shastri
and
Patel,
fielding
coach
R
Sridhar
and
Arun
are
also
isolating
in
London.

Only
batting
coach
Vikram
Rathour
was
with
the
team
when
it
won
the
fourth
Test
at
the
Oval
on
day
five.
All
the
players
and
the
support
staff
are
fully
vaccinated
but
both
teams
are
not
operating
in
strict
bio-bubbles
with
life
in
UK
almost
back
to
normal.

Shastri
is
likely
to
have
got
the
symptoms
after
attending
the
launch
of
his
book
in
the
team
hotel
where
outside
guests
were
also
allowed.
Arun,
Patel
and
Sridhar
attended
that
function
in
person.
After
bouncing
back
to
register
a
thumping
win
in
the
fourth
Test,
India
lead
the
five-match
series
2-1.
