Last year in the Test matches against England, Rohit Sharma is the highest leading run-scorer for India. After Rohit Sharma tested Covid Positive questions arose about whether he would play in the test match or not.

Rohit Sharma can still play if he tests negative in the further rounds of testing. It is worth mentioning that, as of now, Rohit Sharma has tested positive in the Rapid-Antigen Tests. In a few cases, there were situations where a rapid test could be a false report. He has also tested for the RTPCR test, the test result will be available in a few hours. In that result, if Rohit Sharma tests positive, there is no doubt that Rohit Sharma will not play the match.
