After Krunal Pandya, Krishnappa Gowtham and Yuzvendra Chahal were also coronavirus positive. Both Gowtham and Chahal were asked to self-quarantine after working closely with Krunal. The duo was also excluded from the second and third T20I matches between India and Sri Lanka due to the fear of COVID-19. News that COVID-19 struck an Indian camp in Sri Lanka was confirmed by the Indian Cricket Management Board (BCCI) on Tuesday, July 27, after Kurnal was infected with the coronavirus.
Both Gowtham and Chahal have previously tested with other close contacts of the Mumbai Indians (MI) All-Rounder. However, they tested positive on a second COVID-19 test and were quarantined again. After completing the forced quarantine, the duo will be tested for COVID-19 again before returning home.
And on Friday, Gotham’s Indian Premier League (IPL) team Chennai Super Kings (CSK) also wanted its all-rounder to recover quickly.
“We will send all love and support for a quick recovery. Our king will be stronger,” the three-time IPL champion wrote on Twitter.
In response to CSK’s post, Punjab Kings (PBKS), a former IPL franchise of Gotham, also greeted Karnataka batters.
Get well soon, Gotham 🤗 — Punjab Kings (@PunjabKingsIPL) July 30, 2021
“Please get well soon, Gotham” and the costume led by KL Rahul are written in the comment box along with the emoji of “Hugging Face”.
India’s Sri Lanka tour was the first tour with Gotham’s national team. He made his ODI debut in India in the first day of the third match of the series.
However, he did not make his debut in the shortest form of the game because he was not nominated for playing XI in the T20I tournament in India and was excluded from other games.
Meanwhile, the Sri Lankan team also finished the losing streak by defeating the depleted Indian side 2-1 in the three-game T20I series.
