Kolkata Knight Riders pace bowler M. Prasidh Krishna has tested positive for Covid-19 although his tour of England with India team may not be in jeopardy as he felt better following light fever over the previous two days.
The pace bowler is supposed to travel to England as one of the four standby cricketers along with fellow pacers Avesh Khan and Arzan Nagwaswalla, and batsman Abhimanyu Easwaran.
He is undergoing two weeks of quarantine at home. Krishna becomes the fourth KKR player to test positive after Varun Chakravarthy, Sandeep Warrier and New Zealander Tim Seifert, whose test result was announced positive this morning. Seifert is being flown to Chennai from Ahmedabad for treatment on the completion of which he will leave for home.
The Indian team’s departure for England is still over three weeks away and Krishna may recover by that time since the infection is said to be mild.
