India tour of England: Another massive blow as Captain Rohit Sharma tests COVID positive

India England Tour is being discussed all across for the team captain Rohit Sharma has tested COVID positive.

After the loss of electrifying opener KL Rahul due to his injury, the Indian cricket team is again facing another dangerous situation as Captain Rohit Sharma found COVID positive on Saturday afternoon through a rapid antigen test. 

The Indian cricket team is now in worry of losing both first choice Opener i.e. KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma.  The selectors are looking for another option for the only test match, which starts in Brimgham on July 1.  However, the selectors didn’t send a replacement for KL as Shubham Gill was designated as a reserve option for the test match. 

The convenient option for opening, which selectors are looking for, could be Mayank Agarwal or Ruturaj Gaikwad.  If Rohit fails to recover, Jaspreet Bhumrah or Rishabh Pant may go for the captaincy.  The decision will be taken soon.
