Virat Kohli had tested covid positive but has now recovered: Reports

As per the latest report in the Times of India, Indian cricketer Virat Kohli had tested positive for the covid-19 virus, but he has recovered. The right-handed batter is fit to play the fifth test match for India.

However, the Indian team is skeptical about more covid-19 cases in the team. They will assort to a cautious approach in the warm-up as per the advice of the Medical staff.

This now means that India’s tour game against Leicestershire from June 24 won’t be as intense as coach Rahul Dravid wanted it to be, since the medical advice is to not overload the players after they’ve suffered Covid-19.” said a source to the TOI.
