Indian cricketer Washington Sundar has tested positive for Covid-19. The 22-year-old was part of the 18-man ODI team, but his participation in the series remains in doubt after testing positive.
The one-day international series against South Africa will begin on January 19. The second ODI is on January 21, after which the squad will fly to Cape Town for the series finale.
Washington has not played in the international series since suffering an injury during India's tour of England last year. However, he represented Tamil Nadu in the Vijay Hazare Trophy and played well.
