With the Indian Premier League (IPL) suspended this season, Indian fans are looking forward to the World Test Championship (WTC) final against New Zealand next month. The BCCI has already announced the squad for the same but days before the team are set to arrive in Mumbai and be a part of a bio-bubble before leaving for England, a member of the India squad part of that tour has returned a positive result for COVID-19 and it is none other than Wriddhiman Saha.
Notably, Saha had tested positive for the infection while the IPL was on and despite staying in isolation for two weeks, the Sunrisers Hyderabad wicketkeeper has tested positive for COVID-19, which means he will have to continue to remain in isolation. However, the good news is that he has recovered from fever, body ache and cough and has no visible Coronavirus symptoms now.
Was very scared in the initial days of contracting infection: Saha
“I was certainly scared. A virus that has brought the Earth to a standstill, after being infected by it, I was bound to feel scared. Everyone in the family was very worried. We reassured them through video calls that there is no reason to be afraid. I am being taken care of enough,” Saha said earlier in an interview with Anandbazar Patrika.
After returning a positive result now, he has urged his followers on social media to not spread stories without the complete information.
