The second T20 cricket match between India and Sri Lanka to be held at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo on Tuesday was postponed after all-rounder Krunal Pandya was found to be Corona positive. Now this match will be played on Wednesday. The third and last T20 match will be held on Thursday. Krunal was found positive on Monday, who has been kept on quarantine. The RT-PCR report of the rest of India’s players is awaited.
It is learned that Krunal complained of a sore throat on Tuesday morning, after which the Indian medical staff asked him to undergo a rapid antigen test, which turned out to be positive. It is also learned that his RT-PCR test was also done and that too came out positive. On the other hand, there are no reports of positive results in the Sri Lankan team. He is to be tested on Wednesday morning. India won the first T20 match by 38 runs. However, it is beyond comprehension that the last one month has been in a strict bio-bubble (safe environment created to protect against corona). How did Krunal become positive? The environment in which the bio-bubble is made is very safe where there is zero chance of any other person entering. In such a situation, when Krunal came in contact with an outsider and got affected, this is a big question.
At the same time, due to the positive arrival of Krunal, the departure of Prithvi Shaw and Suryakumar Yadav can also be affected in England. Both of them are currently in Sri Lanka and they were expected to leave for England after playing the second T20 match. Now in such a situation, there will be a delay in his departure, due to which he is not likely to play in the first Test against England starting on August 4. At the same time, according to the reason for Krunal being positive, the Indian team is staying at the Taj Samudra Hotel in Colombo and it is being told that he may have been affected by Kovid here. In addition, logistics staff such as bus drivers or on-ground catering staff may also be carriers.
