In what comes as a significant blow to India ahead of the one-off Test against England beginning on July 1, Rohit Sharma has tested positive for Covid-19. A BCCI release stated that the Indian captain has been placed under isolation and an RT-PCR test has been scheduled for Sunday to confirm and determine the severity of the infection.

Rohit featured in India's ongoing tour game against Leicestershire but didn't bat on Day 3 of India's second innings. He opened the batting in the first essay and made 25 before being dismissed by Roman Walker. India are already rueing the services of other regular opener KL Rahul, who is down with a groin injury.
