India’s rescheduled Test against England starts on July 1, but until then there are doubts over the availability of captain Sharma. In an email sent by the BCCI on Sunday morning, it was confirmed that Rohit had contracted COVID-19. Tests rescheduled in the final game of India’s 2-1 Test series were put on hold last year due to an outbreak of COVID-19 in Indian camps. If India win or even draw the final Test, it will lead to their fourth Test series win in England.

However, Rohit’s positive case of COVID-19 has complicated matters for the Indian cricket team. But in a photo posted to his Instagram Story, Sharma can be seen giving a thumbs up and smiling from his room.

Batsman Mayank Agarwal has been added to India’s Test squad for the rescheduled match against England as a cover for captain Sharma, who recently tested positive for COVID-19. The addition of Mayank is significant as appointed vice-captain KL Rahul is also injured, leaving India with only one regular starting batsman in Shubman Gill’s squad.

“The All India Selection Committee has added Mayank Agarwal to India’s testing squad for a rescheduled fifth test as cover for captain Sharma, who has tested positive for COVID-19. Mayank has travelled to the UK and will In Birmingham,” the BCCI said in an official release.
