Covid-19 fears have gripped the Indian cricket team touring in England. Four of India's support staff members including head coach Ravi Shastri were sent to isolation. The decision by the BCCI was taken after Shastri returned positive in a lateral flow test. Others sent to isolation are bowling coach Bharat Arun, fielding coach R Sridhar, physiotherapist Nitin Patel. “The BCCI Medical Team has isolated Mr Ravi Shastri, Head Coach, Mr B. Arun, Bowling Coach, Mr R. Sridhar, Fielding Coach and Mr Nitin Patel, Physiotherapist as a precautionary measure after Mr Shastri’s lateral flow test returned positive last evening,” BCCI said. “They have undergone RT-PCR testing and shall remain in the team hotel and not travel with Team India until confirmation from the medical team,” BCCI added. Meanwhile, in the match, India got in a dominant position on Day 3 of the ongoing fourth Test. Rohit's ton and Pujara's fifty helped India take a 171-run lead at close of play on Saturday.
