Team India have begun training in Ahmedabad for the three-match ODI series against West Indies, days after multiple COVID-19 cases were detected in the Indian camp. What comes as a respite is that no new cases have been detected.

Incidentally, a couple of COVID-19 cases have emerged in the Indian camp with Shikhar Dhawan, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Shreyas Iyer, and Navdeep Singh affected among the cricketers. Three other support staff have also contracted COVID-19, including fielding coach T Dilip.

However, a report in ANI has confirmed that there have been no new positive cases in the hosts camp.

“No new COVID-19 case has been reported in the bubble and the members have started training. The players barring the positive members have started training,” the source pointed.
