None of them, however, will travel to the ground for the last two matches of the series
What still remains unclear is the period Krunal and his eight contacts will need to be in isolation. However, it has been learned that the contacts have been separated from the rest of the India squad and that they will need to clear another RT-PCR test. Professor Arjuna de Silva, who oversees SLC’s bio-bubble protocols for international tours, told ESPNcricinfo, that it was unclear how Krunal might have contracted the disease, as there have been no reports of the bubble being broken, or any other significant irregularities.
The India team have a hotel to themselves, and even the staff working in the hotel are essentially part of the bubble and undergo frequent testing. De Silva said that no one else, including staff, had tested positive so far.
