Robi Shastri and support staff members may leave UK on 15th, test report must come negative

Manchester. Apart from Indian head coach Ravi Shastri, his support staff teammates Bharat Arun and R Sridhar are expected to leave for India on Wednesday if their RT-PCR report comes back twice negative. Before the fourth Test at the Shastri Oval, he tested positive for the Covid-1 test, after which he was disconnected from September to September. His 10-day quarantine with Arun and Sridhar is scheduled to end on Monday.


All three will have to pass the RT-PCR test before leaving the UK for India. After the Indian Premier League (IPL 2021), the Indian team is expected to bring a tough ‘bio-bubble’ to Dubai as they come together to campaign for the T20 World Cup. The second edition of the 14th edition of the IPL will be held from September 19 and the T20 World Cup from October 17.

A senior official of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) said on condition of anonymity, “Ravi, Sridhar and Arun have no problem and they have no symptoms. They will complete their RT-PCR test on Monday and if all goes well they may leave on the pre-scheduled departure date of 15 September. The medical team will make the final decision.

Meanwhile, other support staff members of the Indian team will arrive in India via Dubai on a commercial flight on Monday afternoon. Junior physio Yogesh Parmar, who came positive in September, will be in quarantine for a few more days and will leave home soon after completion. The fifth Test between India and England at Old Trafford in Manchester has been canceled. A single Test could be held in July next year, but the England and Wales Cricket Board has appealed to the ICC to resolve the issue through its dispute committee.
