The two, as well as Krunal Pandya, will stay back in Sri Lanka for the time being
While Krunal was moved to an isolation facility immediately after he tested positive in both the Rapid Antigen and RT-PCR tests on July 27, the remaining eight players were staying at the team hotel, but separated from the rest of the touring party.
According to the Sri Lankan government’s guidelines, anyone testing positive for the virus needs to isolate for at least ten days and then clear a fresh round of tests to be allowed to leave the country. Those identified as close contacts of the affected person must isolate for seven days and then clear the prescribed tests.
The development is bound to pose further hurdles for the pair of Shaw and Yadav, who were scheduled to fly out to England immediately after the Sri Lanka tour to link up with the India Test squad.
