Rahul Dravid, the head coach of the Indian cricket team, has been infected with Corona. In this regard, BCCI Secretary Jay Shah has given information on Twitter. As a result, his visit to UAE with the Indian team for the Asia Cup has gone into uncertainty.
The Indian team will visit the UAE on Tuesday for the Asia Cup. Earlier, Dravid’s sample came out positive during the regular health check-up of all the team members. As a result, he will not go to the UAE with the team on Tuesday. If his sample comes out negative during the next test, he will go to UAE and join the team. He was replaced by V.V.S. Laxman has been appointed as the coach of the team.
Dravid did not even go during the Indian team’s visit to Zimbabwe. Laxman was sent instead. Players visiting Zimbabwe will arrive directly in the UAE. The players in India will leave for the UAE on Tuesday.
The Asia Cup is starting from 27th. The Indian team will play its first match against its arch-rival Pakistan on Sunday, August 28.
