Wriddhiman Saha, Abhimanyu Easwaran and Bharat Arun out of quarantine, join team in Durham

25 Jul 2021

Wriddhiman Saha, Abhimanyu Easwaran and Bharat Arun, the close contacts of India's Covid-positive throwdown specialist Dayanand Garani, have completed their 10-day isolation in London and joined the remaining squad in Durham, BCCI informed on Saturday.

The trio were sent in precautionary isolation after Garani's test report returned a positive result on July 15. Saha and Easwaran had missed India's 3-day tour match versus County Select XI due to the same reason.

Star wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant also contracted the virus during Team India's 21-day break after the completion of World Test Championship (WTC) final against New Zealand in Southampton. Pant has recovered and joined the squad in Durham.

KL Rahul donned the gloved for India in the absence of Pant and Saha in the tour match which ended in a draw on Thursday. The tour match saw pacer Avesh Khan and all-rounder Washington Sundar getting injured while fielding and batting respectively. The two players are likely to return home soon.

India will play another intra-squad match before the start of 5-Test series against England from August 4 in Nottingham.
