Dhull is one of five Indian players who have recovered from the COVID-19 infection and is available for the Under-19 World Cup quarterfinal match against Bangladesh in Osbourn on Saturday.
Five affected Indian players, including captain Yash Dhull, have recovered and are eligible for Saturday’s Under-19 World Cup quarterfinal match against Bangladesh in Osbourn, Antigua, but the team has also been hit by a fresh incidence of the virus. India’s captain Nishant Sindhu tested positive for a banned substance following the team’s last league match against Uganda and will miss the tournament’s knockout stage. Sindhu will be replaced in the squad by left-arm spinner Aneeshwar Gautam. Following the outbreak of COVID in the camp, the Indian team was unable to field a team of eleven.
A positive RTPCR test was returned by captain Dhull, his deputy Shaik Rasheed, Aaradhya Yadav, and Manav Parakh prior to the Ireland game.
Only Sindhu remains unfit, according to an ICC source.
After spending the previous seven days in isolation in Trinidad, Dhull and the other afflicted players arrived in Antigua on Friday morning.
They won’t have much time to prepare for the knockout game on Saturday night.
“There is no medical reason why they can’t play. They have a few days to practice and get ready for the game “I’ve included a source.
