Corona-positive players will also be able to play in the World Test Championship (WTC) final on the advice of doctors. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is going to change its Kovid policy. According to media reports, the BCCI is considering adopting the Covid policy of the International Cricket Council (ICC). Actually, according to BCCI's corona policy, the player will remain quarantined for 5 days after being corona positive. He will be able to play only after the corona report comes negative. At the same time, ICC has already changed its Corona rules. According to ICC rules, any player can play on the advice of team doctors even after being corona positive. A player can play if the team doctor deems him fit to play.
BCCI will allow Corona positive players in the WTC final on the basis of certain conditions and positive players will not share a dressing room.
A team of doctors will examine his health before allowing him to play and then take a final call. Positive players will have to wear a mask on the ground. Also, he will not be allowed to celebrate with the team. Corona-positive players also took the field to play in the women's T20 in the Commonwealth Games.
Due to BCCI's Corona rules, Rohit Sharma could not play the fifth Test against England on the tour of England last year. In his place, Jasprit Bumrah was given the captaincy of the team. Team India had to face defeat in this test. In this way, the series of five Test matches ended in a 2-2 draw.
The final of the World Test Championship (WTC) is to be played between India and Australia at the Oval ground in England from June 7 to 11. Team India has reached the WTC final for the second time in a row. Earlier, India had to face defeat against New Zealand in the first WTC final played in England itself.
