Indian wicketkeeper-batsman Wriddhiman Saha has tested negative from the COVID-19 virus as he is back to be with family. There was a lot of confusion in between as the 35-year-old was once again tested positive before the third test came as negative. Saha finally met his beloved family after being in isolation for 14 days in Delhi. He shared a picture on the social media page where he was seen as happy and cheerful.

The experienced wicketkeeper-batter is one of the two wicketkeepers to be included in the squad to play the inaugural ICC World Test Championship final and the five-match series to be followed in England, which will start on August 4th. Apart from Saha, the maverick wicketkeeper-batter Rishabh Pant is the other designated keeper in the squad of 20 players announced by the selectors.

Saha had requested the BCCI officials to allow him some time to be with his family in Kolkata. The officials permitted him as he flew from Delhi to be with his near and dear ones before the team departs on June 02 to England, as reported by ESPNcricinfo.

I am doing much better: Wriddhiman Saha

The 35-year-old wicketkeeper was one of the three members included in the squad, whose availability depended on fitness. Meanwhile, KL Rahul and fast bowler Prasidh Krishna are still recovering from appendicitis surgery and Coronavirus respectively.

“My quarantine period is still not over. As a part of the routine check-up, 2 tests were done, out of which 1 was negative and the other one came as positive. Otherwise, I am doing much better. Requesting everyone not to spread misleading stories/information without the whole context,” Saha had written.

Earlier in the day, BCCI officials decided to arrange charter planes for the players who are UK bound. The board is also arranging COVID tests daily as the board does not want to take any risks and wants to ensure the safety of players. In a packed schedule and bio-bubble environment, players’ welfare and health are of top-most importance as the Indian team fights to take top honors in the WTC and the England series.
