Team India off-spinner, Ravichandran Ashwin has tested Covid positive and did not go to the United Kingdom with his teammates for the one-off 'fifth Test,' against England.

Ashwin is now quarantined and will only join the squad after all protocol criteria have been met.

The Indian squad travelled to the United Kingdom on June 16. "Ashwin did not go with the squad to the UK because he tested positive for Covid 19 prior to departure. But we are confident that he will recuperate in time for the Test match on July 1. However, he may miss the practice game against Leicestershire. " from sources
