The Board Of Control for Cricket in India has added Mayank Agarwal to the squad as a back-up after seven members of the Indian cricket team along with staff members tested positive for Covid-19.
Openers Shikhar Dhawan and Ruturaj Gaikwad and batter Shreyas Iyer are among the players who have tested positive for Covid-19, according to Sportstar.
“Three players — Ruturaj Gaikwad, Shreyas Iyer and Shikhar Dhawan have tested positive. However, there are multiple COVID positive cases among non-coaching administrative support staff. It could be between two to four people,” a veteran BCCI official told PTI on conditions of anonymity.
