Team India Captain Rohit Sharma Tests Positive for COVID-19 Rohit Sharma, the captain of the Indian cricket team, tested positive for COVID-19 in England.

Just days before the commencement of the rescheduled Test match against England, Indian cricket team skipper Rohit Sharma tested positive for COVID-19. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) released a formal statement and updated its Twitter account with the information.

“ #TeamIndia Captain Mr. Rohit Sharma has tested positive for COVID-19 following a Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) conducted on Saturday. He is currently in isolation at the team hotel and is under the care of the BCCI Medical Team.” BCCI (@BCCI) June 25, 2022


Rohit Sharma was a member of the side that played Leicestershire in a four-day exhibition match before the pivotal Test match against England, which will start on July 1 at the Edgbaston in Birmingham. In India’s second innings on Saturday, Rohit did not bat despite having played in the first innings on Thursday. In the first innings of the exhibition game, he scored 25 runs before being struck out.

India has a 2-1 advantage over England in the Test series. India defeated Sri Lanka 2-0 at home in a Test series earlier this year, under Rohit’s leadership. It will be his maiden Test match as captain of the Indian team away from home if he heals in time for the match in Edgbaston.

Headed by Virat Kohli Last year, India led England 2-1, but a Covid outbreak in the Indian camp forced the cancellation of the fifth and final test. The remaining Test match this year will be rescheduled by the BCCI and ECB.

In addition to the Test match, India will play three T20Is and three ODIs during the visit.
