The Indian cricket team captain is currently in isolation after he tested positive for Covid-19 on Saturday. The star batter is racing against time to be available for the rescheduled fifth Test against England which is to be played at Edgbaston in Birmingham, starting on July 1.
While fans are hoping for the ‘Hitman’ speedy recovery, BCCI sent opening batter Mayank Agarwal as a backup for the captain. The right-hander had left for England on Monday (June 27) and will be available for selection for the Test. He will not have to undergo any quarantine, as per the new rules of the government.
