SL vs IND - Krunal Pandya's immediate contacts test negative for Covid-19


None of them, however, will travel to the ground for the last two matches of the series

All the eight people identified as the immediate contacts of India allrounder Krunal Pandya have tested negative for Covid-19 in the fresh round of RT-PCR tests carried out on Tuesday. ESPNcricinfo understands the group of eight, whose identity has not been revealed by the BCCI, cannot travel to the ground for the final two T20Is of the Sri Lanka series. On Tuesday, the BCCI had said all members of the squad would be tested.
The development will come as a shot in the arm for Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) as it paves the way for the remaining two matches to be played over consecutive days on July 28 and 29 in Colombo. On Tuesday, the BCCI confirmed Krunal had tested positive for Covid-19, which led to the SLC postponing the second T20I by a day. The allrounder tested positive in both the antigen as well RT-PCR tests, after complaining of a sore throat on Tuesday morning.
