IND vs WI: KL Rahul, Mayank join India camp; Saini returns from Covid isolation
Ahmedabad, February 7, 2022
Vice-captain K L Rahul and batter Mayank Agarwal have joined the India camp after missing the first one-day international (ODI) against the West Indies.
Meanwhile, Navdeep Saini, who was in isolation after contracting Covid-19, is also back with the team.
On Monday, the Indian cricket board (BCCI) took to Twitter to share pictures of Rahul, Mayank, and Saini training at the Narendra Modi Stadium as India began preparations for the second ODI, which will be played on Wednesday.
"Look who are here! The trio has joined the squad and sweated it out in the practice session today. #TeamIndia | #INDvWI," the BCCI said in a statement.
Rahul missed the first ODI due to personal reasons. Agarwal was not part of the squad for the first ODI as he was still completing his quarantine after being added to the squad last week following Covid-19 cases in the Indian camp.
Earlier, the trio of Shikhar Dhawan, Ruturaj Gaikwad and Shreyas Iyer along with four members of the support staff and standby player Saini tested positive for Covid-19 upon their arrival in Ahmedabad.
