Rohit Sharma recovers from Covid, ready for T20I series

Rohit Sharma recovers from Covid, ready for T20I series

Southampton, July 6 (UNI) Team India Captain Rohit Sharma has recovered from Covid and will play the first T20I after having missed the delayed fifth Test at Edgbaston.
"The recovery has been good. It's been 8-9 days since I got Covid. We have seen over the last few years that each player has responded to the Covid virus differently. I don't know what will happen in the future but at the moment, everything is fine with me," Rohit told reporters in Southampton.
Rohit was not expected to play the first T20I initially.
"I began training 3 days ago. That's why I thought of taking part in this game (first T20I). Body-wise, I am feeling better. I don't have any symptoms now. I have done 2-3 tests, and all of them have returned negative (laughs). I am just looking forward to the game. It's going to be an exciting one," the right-hand batter added.
"It's always good to be back, playing for your country. You don't want to miss any games for your country but certain things are not in your control. Yes, now that I am back, I am excited, and looking forward."
Rohit had tested positive for Covid on June 25 after he did not take the field on Day 3 of the warmup match against Leicestershire.
