India vs Sri Lanka There were only a few hours left for the start of the second T20 International that suddenly came the news that Indian player Krunal Pandya has become a victim of the Corona epidemic. The match had to be postponed for a day. The shocking thing is that 8 other players have also come in contact with Krunal. All were immediately isolated. Now RTPCR of all the players will be done.
Every solution is failing!
This match, to be held in Colombo in a hurry, was scheduled on Wednesday, July 28. That is, if everything goes well, then Colombo’s R. Team India, captained by Shikhar Dhawan at the Premadasa Stadium, will play both the remaining T20Is against Sri Lanka on 28 and 29 July. To avoid the epidemic, all the matches of the tournament are being played on the same ground. The entry of spectators is also banned. Players have no contact with the outside world. Cricket boards are doing everything possible to avoid the pandemic. Such a question is arising that in the midst of a tough bio bubble, players are falling prey to corona, so what should be done so that both the player and the game can be saved from the epidemic?
The match was canceled after the toss
If seen, this is the second time within 7 days that a cricket match has had to be canceled or postponed. Earlier on July 22, the match between West Indies and Australia also had to be suspended due to Korana virus. This match was played over two days. In fact, soon after the toss in the second ODI, it was found that a member of the West Indies team has been found to be Corona positive. After this, there was a stir in the camp of both the teams. The cancellation of the match was announced just minutes before the first ball was bowled.
7 members of England team were Covid positive in Bio Bubble
Just two days before the ODI series against Pakistan, i.e. on 6th July, there was a stir in the English camp. A total of seven members of the team including three players were found to be Corona positive, after which the entire team was changed in a hurry. Ben Stokes was made the captain of the team. Along with this, nine uncapped players got a place in the 18-man squad.
Pant was a victim of Corona in England
Cases of corona were also reported in the Indian Test team in England and wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant was hit by it, due to which he could not take part in the practice match in Durham. However, he was not a part of the bio bubble. He was on holiday after the WTC final.
India going ahead in the series
Talking about the India and Sri Lanka series, the second T20 was to be played today. The toss would happen at 7.30 pm, while the match was scheduled to start at 8. The last T20 of the series will be played on July 29 at the Premadasa Stadium in Colombo. A three match T20 series is being played between India and Sri Lanka and Team India is leading 1-0 in it. India defeated Sri Lanka 2-0 in the three-match ODI series.
Despite the tough bio bubble, two matches are ‘victims’ of Corona within 7 days, what is the remedy for the epidemic?
