Senior off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin has not travelled to the United Kingdom along with his teammates for the one-off ‘fifth Test’ after testing positive for COVID-19, a BCCI source told PTI on Monday. Ashwin is currently in quarantine and will only join the squad after meeting all protocol requirements. The Indian team had left for UK on June 16. “Ashwin hasn’t travelled with the squad to UK as he has tested positive for Covid 19 before departure. But we are hopeful that he will recover well in time before the Test match starts on July 1,” a BCCI source told PTI on conditions of anonymity.

“However he might miss the practice game against Leicestershire,” the source added.

The rest of the squad is already in Leicester and started training under supervision of bowling coach Paras Mhambrey and batting coach Vikram Rathour.
