Indian cricketers Yuzvendra Chahal and K Gowtham have tested positive for COVID-19 in Sri Lanka, ESPN has reported.
Chahal, Gowtham and six other members of the Indian cricket team - Hardik, Prithvi Shaw, Suryakumar Yadav, Manish Pandey, Deepak Chahar and Ishan Kishan - were under isolation in Colombo after coming into contact with Krunal Pandya, who had tested positive for COVID-19 on July 27.
The rest of the Indian team will fly back home on July 30 afternoon, ESPN reported.
PTI separately reported that the squad has left from Colombo but it is still waiting at the airport after the fresh cases came to light and is expected to leave later in the day.
"Yuzi and Gowtham have tested positive as the team was supposed to return by a charter flight to Bengaluru sans Krunal Pandya. But now as per rules, Gowtham and Yuzi will also have to be in seven-day isolation in Sri Lanka," a BCCI source in Colombo told PTI.
