These two players were among the 9 players who were isolated after India all-rounder Krunal Pandya tested positive. Krunal Pandya tested positive ahead of the second Twenty-20 International against Sri Lanka, after which the match was postponed to Wednesday (July 28).

Krunal Pandya’s Infection Deferred The 2nd T20I By A Day And Resulted In A T20I Series Loss After 9 Players Including His Close Contacts Were Ruled Out

Eight more players who were identified as his close associates were later isolated as a precautionary measure.  Meanwhile, according to sources, apart from the infected players, the cricketers from the Indian team who have tested negative will leave Sri Lanka soon. Prithvi Shaw and Suryakumar Yadav are supposed to be flown to the United Kingdom where they will join as replacement players after Avesh Khan and Washington Sundar got injured.

India lost the T20 series 1-2 after several players of the squad had to be isolated owing to Krunal Pandya’s infection. The ODI series was delayed by five days and then the second T20 International, slated on Tuesday, had to be deferred by a day after Krunal Pandya tested positive, having shown symptoms on that day.

In the 2nd T20I match, India was restricted to a modest 132 for 5 with skipper Shikhar Dhawan top-scoring with 40. The hosts Sri Lanka then chased down the target with four wickets in hand and two balls to spare.

In the 3rd and final T20I, opting to bat first, -led India got off to a poor start as the captain fell for a golden duck. Birthday boy Wanindu Hasaranga’s 4 for 9 and SL skipper Dasun Shanaka’s brilliant athleticism and 2/20 restricted India’s inexperienced batting line-up for a mere 81/9 in 20 overs-their second lowest T20I score.
