HIGHLIGHTS

  • Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer have tested negative for Covid-19
  • Iyer and Dhawan went through some light training at the Narendra Modi Stadium
  • Both Iyer and Dhawan will miss the second ODI against West Indies

India opener Shikhar Dhawan and middle-order batter Shreyas Iyer have been cleared for training after testing negative for Covid-19. However, they are ruled out of the second ODI that is scheduled to take place in Ahmedabad on Wednesday.

Iyer and Dhawan went through some light training at the Narendra Modi Stadium under the watchful eyes of the BCCI medical team. Young opener Ruturaj Gaikwad, however, is still in isolation. Earlier, before the first ODI against West Indies, Shreyas Iyer, Dhawan, Ruturaj, and Navdeep Saini had tested positive for Covid-19.

As a result, all these players missed the first ODI against West Indies. The Rohit-led squad defeated the Windies by six wickets in the first ODI at the Narendra Modi Stadium. India will look to seal the series when they take on the West Indies in the second ODI of the three-match series in Ahmedabad on Wednesday.
