IND Vs ENG: Team India’s troubles have increased after Rishabh Pant’s corona positive on the England tour. Rishabh Pant is also facing criticism for watching the Euro Cup match without a mask. But BCCI President Sourav Ganguly has defended Rishabh Pant. Ganguly says that it is not possible to wear a mask all the time.
Sourav Ganguly has also talked about the relief in health related protocols in Britain. Ganguly also argued that spectators were also allowed to enter the stadium during the Euro 2020 Championship and Wimbledon Championships. Apart from wicketkeeper Pant, throwdown specialist Dayanand Garani has also come Kovid-19 positive and both of them are quarantined in London. Three others Abhimanyu Easwaran, Wriddhiman Saha and bowling coach Bharat Arun are also in quarantine.
Sourav Ganguly is currently in Oman to prepare for the T20 World Cup. Sourav Ganguly said, “We saw the Euro Championship and Wimbledon in England. The rules have changed and spectators have been allowed to enter the stadium. They were on holidays and it is not possible to wear masks all the time.
Ganguly hopes Pant’s recovery soon
Ganguly is confident that Pant and Garani will recover in time. Sourav Ganguly said, “Nothing to worry. They’ll be fine.”
The BCCI has already made it clear that no other player will be sent to England for Rishabh Pant’s backup. However, India will have to take the field without a specialist wicketkeeper in the practice match to be held from July 20. Due to the absence of Pant and Saha, KL Rahul will be seen handling the responsibility of wicketkeeping.
