The captain of the Indian women’s T20 team Harmanpreet Kaur has tested positive for COVID-19 and is experiencing mild symptoms.
Kaur, who did not play in the T20 series against South Africa in Lucknow, after being injured in the fifth ODI on March 17, underwent tests on Monday after suffering a mild fever.
“She is isolating herself at home. She was tested yesterday and the report was positive this morning. She had a mild fever for four days, so she thought it was best to be tested. Otherwise she is doing well and should soon recover, “a source close to the player told PTI.
“She was tested regularly during the series in South Africa, so she should have caught the virus only after that,” the source added.
Kaur had shown decent form in ODI, marking half a century and 40.
India, which returned to international cricket after 12 months, lost both the ODI and T20 series.
