Team India sees last minute development ahead of England tour

Andhra Pradesh wicketkeeper batsman KS Bharat has been included in the team as a standby for Wriddhiman Saha. Saha recently recovered from Covid-19, which he contracted during the IPL and now will join the team on May 24 in a bio-bubble in Mumbai. After a weeks time, Team India will leave for England.

Saha, who plays for the Sunrisers Hyderabad, spent two weeks in quarantine in Delhi before returning home to Kolkata this week. Having been away from home since the England series in February followed by the IPL, Saha sought permission from the BCCI to visit his family before joining the Indian squad in Mumbai next week.

KS Bharat reached Mumbai on May 19 where the team will be serving a two-week quarantine time in their hotel rooms before leaving for London on June 2. Bharat, who has been a regular wicketkeeper for India A, was also one of the standbys for India’s home Tests against England in February-March.
