Ravi Shastri returns positive lateral flow test, placed in isolation along with three others


Bowling coach Bharat Arun, fielding coach R Sridhar and physiotherapist Nitin Patel to remain in team hotel with the head coach

Ravi Shastri, the head coach of the Indian team, returned a positive lateral flow (Covid-19) test on Saturday evening in London, and has subsequently been placed in isolation in the team hotel by the BCCI medical team “as a precautionary measure”. Along with Shastri, bowling coach Bharat Arun, fielding coach R Sridhar, and physiotherapist Nitin Patel are also isolating.

“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,” a BCCI statement said on Sunday, less than half an hour before the start of play on the fourth day of the fourth England vs India Test at The Oval.

“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.”
