Indian women T20Is skipper Harmanpreet Kaur has tested positive for coronavirus. The wicket-keeper batsman is currently not with the Indian team and advised to remain quarantined until she returns negative in her next test.
The 32-year-old was a part of the Indian women team that hosted South Africa women this month. She played in the ODI series but couldn’t bat in the final ODI due to an injury.
Smriti Mandhana led the team in the three-match T20I series that the hosts lost by 2-1. In fact, Kaur was ruled out of the T20I series after suffering from hip-flexor during the fifth and final ODI game against South Africa. She scored 30 runs before getting retired hurt and even added 50-run partnership with the skipper Mithali Raj.
As per the health department she is also showing symptoms, that’s why she has put herself in home isolation until any improvement in her health.
The Indian women cricket team played their first international cricket after exactly one year when they hosted South Africa women for the limited-overs series comprising of five ODIs and three T20Is.
The visitors outclassed the hosts 4-1 in the ODI series and rubbed more salt to their wounds by even winning the T20I series 2-1.
