MUMBAI: Opener KL Rahul, who tested positive for Covid-19 on July 21, is likely to miss India’s upcoming five-match T20I series against West Indies, starting on July 29 at Tarouba.
However, the BCCI will not announce a replacement for the senior India batsman.
“Rahul needs rest for another fortnight to recover completely from Covid. However, it is unlikely that a replacement for him will be sent to the West Indies. Either Rishabh Pant or Ishan Kishan can open with Rohit. There’s no point in sending someone now,” a source in the BCCI said.
