Ashwin returned after the 5th Test against England while Karthik, Bhuvneshwar and others returned home after the three-match T20I series against England. As they are not part of the Windies’ ODI squad, they will be directly linked to the T20 squad. Rohit Sharma and Rishabh will return from their holiday. However, Jasprit Bumrah has been rested from the entire tour.

KL Rahul’s fortunes are in balance: Rahul was supposed to appear for the fitness test on Sunday but before that he tested positive for Covid-19. His mandatory 7-day quarantine period will end only on July 26 and after that, he will have to appear for a fitness test. Considering he has returned two negative Covid-19 tests, he still has to undergo a cardio-vascular test and only then will be eligible to return.

In such a scenario, it is fair to assume that the Indian vice-captain will at least miss the first T20 on July 29, if not the entire tour. The second T20I is scheduled for August 1 and if he can go to the Caribbean Islands. He passed all the required tests. But he will be able to join the squad only on July 31 or August 1. Which may also rule him out of the 2nd T20I.

IND vs WI T20 series: Why KL Rahul doubtful for entire T20 series?

  • KL Rahul was scheduled to undergo a fitness test on Sunday.
  • He is recovering from a sports hernia surgery in June and is yet to be 100% match fit.
  • But the fitness test will now be delayed as he will have to spend 7 days in isolation.
  • He will have to undergo two negative Covid-19 RT-PCR tests before being released from quarantine.
  • This puts him on a tough timeline as the T20 series begins on July 29.
  • Rahul can come out of quarantine on July 27 if he returns two negative tests.
  • He will also undergo a mandatory cardio-vascular examination. This is mandated by the BCCI for every Covid recovered player.
  • If he clears it, he has to pass the mandatory yo-yo test.
  • If all goes well, he will miss the first two matches.
