The Indian spin allrounder Washington Sundar, who’s a part of India’s ODI group, has examined optimistic for Covid-19 in South Africa. The Indian cricket board has requested the offspinner Jayant Yadav, who’s a part of the Test squad, to remain again for the three-match ODI sequence.
Washington had flown to South Africa together with Suryakumar Yadav, Ruturaj Gaekwad, Shikhar Dhawan, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Deepak Chahar, Venkatesh Iyer, Ishan Kishan, Yuzuvendra Chahal and Prasidh Krishna from Bengaluru a number of days again. They needed to endure a three-day quarantine earlier than becoming a member of the Indian group after the third Test match.
“Sundar has tested positive and he has been isolated from other players. All other players’ reports came negative. They are undergoing a three-day quarantine period. Once they get three negative reports, these players will go into the Indian team bubble,” a BCCI official mentioned.
The Tamil Nadu all-rounder Sundar final performed worldwide cricket in March 2021 and was sidelined because of harm. Washington performed for Tamil Nadu within the Vijay Hazare Trophy and the choice committee picked him for the South Africa ODI sequence. The Indian group will play three ODI sequence ranging from January 19.
Sundar had discovered nice help within the former white-ball captain Virat Kohli prior to now. Last March, requested if there was an opportunity for Ashwin to return to white-ball cricket, Kohli had mentioned, “Washington has been doing really well for us, so you can’t have two players of the same discipline playing in one squad,” Kohli had mentioned. “Unless Washi has a drastically horrible season and things go south for him….the question has to be asked with some kind of logic as well. You suggest where you would add Ash and play him in the team when someone like Washington already does that job for the team.”
When Sundar was out because of harm, Ashwin made his return to white-ball fold, notably for the T20 world cup. Then, he was chosen for the ODI squad as nicely.
The Indian ODI group might be led by KL Rahul as the unique captain Rohit Sharma is but to recuperate from his hamstring harm. The Indian group continued their South Africa tour regardless of Omicron worry. The sequence was postponed for per week and because of this the BCCI and Cricket South Africa determined to play the T20I sequence another time.
