U-19 World Cup 2022: India skipper Yash Dhull and four others recover from COVID-19;
U-19 World Cup 2022: Nishant Sindhu, a young Indian cricketer, tested positive for COVID-19 before a match against Bangladesh in the present Under-19 WC.
However, all other players who were COVID-19 positive earlier have recovered and are available for the quarterfinal match against Bangladesh.
“Nishant Sindhu has tested positive for COVID-19 but all the members that had tested positive earlier have now recovered and are all available for the quarterfinal against Bangladesh,” a source in known development told ANI.
The BCCI announced last week that four India players, including skipper Yash Dhull and vice-captain SK Rasheed, tested positive for COVID-19 on gameday against Ireland.
Two other players were exhibiting symptoms and had RT-PCR testing performed on them. As a result, six players were placed in isolation, and India had to play Ireland with a weakened squad.
Bangladesh’s journey to the match had been less than smooth. With the defending 2020 champions rebounding from a loss to England. In their first game to finish second in Group A.
An eight-wicket victory over Canada followed by a nine-wicket victory (DLS) over UAE. In a rain-shortened game to set up a rematch of the final two years ago.
While India will be looking to avenge their three-wicket loss in the 2020 final. Bangladesh is hitting their stride just in time to lay the stage for an epic clash.
