Senior spinner Ravichandran Ashwin has not traveled to the United Kingdom with his teammates for a one-off ‘Fifth Test’ after positive testing for COVID-19, a BCCI source told PTI on Monday. Ashwin is currently in isolation and will only join the group after meeting all regulatory requirements. The Indian team left for the UK on May 16. “Ashwin has not traveled with the team to the UK as he tested positive for Covid 19 before departure. But we hope it will get better in time before the Test competition starts on July 1, “a BCCI source told PTI on anonymous basis.
