Hours after reports claimed the two Indian cricketers have tested positive for COVID-19, it has been reported that Rishabh Pant is the one who is infected by the deadly virus on July 14 (Wednesday).
Rishabh Pant was spotted attending Euro 2020 game at the Wembley Stadium in England during the 20-day break granted by BCCI to the Indian cricketers after the WTC defeat. Initially, the management was tight-lipped with the cricketer’s name but a report in PTI has quoted a BCCI official saying that the player in question is Pant.
