The dynamic wicketkeeper-batsman has played a key role in India’s previous red-ball cricket victories.

For such ignorant, the BCCI had permitted players to leave the bio-secure bubble following the WTC final against New Zealand. Pant was also seen with a companion at Wembley Stadium a few weeks ago, watching England and Germany play in the Euro 2020 contest. In several viral photos, he wasn’t wearing any masks, and his followers chastised him for it.

Pant is also most likely impacted by the Delta version, which has resulted in an increase in CORONAVIRUS infections in England, according to the research. In reality, the virus has been infecting the 23-year-old for over a week, and he has been healing effectively.

“Yes, one player has tested positive but he has been in isolation for the last eight days. He was not staying in any hotel with the team, so no other player has been affected. But I can’t divulge the name of the player,” BCCI Vice President Rajiv Shukla was quoted as saying.

Pant should be available for the first game in Nottingham on August 4, with the England versus India series starting on August 4. Furthermore, the rest of the team is expected to begin preparing for the series soon. India has been dominating red-ball cricket recently and would like to do the same to the Three Lions.
