Irfan Pathan fourth player to test COVID-19 positive after playing Road Safety World Series


Former India all-rounder Irfan Pathan on Monday grew to become the fourth Indian cricketer to test COVID-19 positive, having just lately taken half within the veteran’s Road Safety World Series match in Raipur, which is quick turning out to be a brilliant spreader.

Before Irfan, his elder brother Yusuf, Sachin Tendulkar and S Badrinath have all taken to twitter to announce that they’ve examined positive for COVID-19.

“I have tested positive for COVID-19 with no symptoms and have isolated myself and quarantined at home. I would request those who came in contact with me in recent past to please get themselves tested,” Irfan tweeted.

“Urging all to wear masks and maintain social distancing. Wishing you all good health,” he additional wrote.

Road Safety World Series is a personal match that did not have BCCI approval because it was solely meant for retired cricketers. The worst half was that the organisers did not limit crowd motion even when BCCI made the later a part of England sequence a closed door affair.

Spectators weren’t carrying masks and questions are being raised as to what sort of bio-bubble was created by the organisers of the Road Safety World Series.
