Another player involved in the Road Safety T20 World Series has been tested positive with COVID-19. Former Tamil Nadu player Subramaniam Badrinath who was a part of the Indian Legends team that won the Road Safety T20 World Series last week tested positive with COVID-19 on Sunday. From that team, Sachin Tendulkar and Yusuf Pathan have already been tested positive with COVID-19.
Even after trying to ensure that all the players were in safety confinements, it seems that the virus still got to the players. Firstly, it was Tendulkar who was tested positive with the coronavirus, followed by Yusuf Pathan. Badrinath, as a matter of fact, even played in the final against Sri Lanka Legends.
After being tested positive for the virus, Badrinath posted a tweet in which he informed all his fans and followers about his conditions. He revealed that he has mild symptoms and will be following all the protocols at home. He also revealed through the tweet that he has been taking the tests regularly.
