Prithvi Shaw and Suryakumar Yadav cleared to fly to England directly from Sri Lanka
It is understood that the pair of Prithvi Shaw and Suryakumar Yadav, who were among Krunal’s eight immediate contacts, will not leave for India with the others but stay back in Colombo and fly out to England soon to join the Indian Test squad.
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.
Krunal is expected to spend at least another week in the Colombo isolation facility, and fly back to India once he has cleared the mandatory tests, a process that now applies to Chahal and Gowtham too.
