It is unclear yet if the two UK-bound players – Shaw and Suryakumar – will come back to India or fly directly to UK
“Yes, only Krunal will have to stay back in Sri Lanka for the time being due to the mandatory isolation period of one week,” a senior BCCI official told PTI on conditions of anonymity.
“After one week, if he has two negative RT-PCR reports, he will be allowed to fly back. Currently he is in the fourth day of his isolation. All others are free to depart as they have all tested negative.”
The ODI series was delayed by five days and then the second T20I, slated on Tuesday, had to be deferred by a day after Krunal tested positive, having shown symptoms on that day.
They were his younger brother Hardik, Shaw, Yadav, Manish Pandey, Deepak Chahar, Krishnappa Gowtham, Ishan Kishan and Yuzvendra Chahal.
However all the eight had tested negative.
