KKR Pacer Prasidh Krishna Tests Positive for Covid-19, Becomes Fourth from Franchise to Contract Virus
Team India and KKR pacer Prasidh Krishna has tested positive for Covid-19. He is the fourth player from the franchise to test positive for the virus after Sandeep Warrier, Varun Chakravarthy and Tim Seifert. Before the start of the season, in March, Nitish Rana from KKR had also tested positive, after entering the team bio-bubble.
Sources within the camp confirmed Krishna’s reports to be positive. “He is down with Covid-19. The results have come in and he has tested positive,” the source said. In the seven matches he played in the IPL this season, he managed to bag eight wickets, with 3/30 as his best against Punjab Kings.
Just recently, after a stellar show in the series against England, and a decent IPL, he was included in the stand-by squad for the upcoming tour of England. He also made his India debut in the series against England, in ODIs. There he managed to scalp six wickets in three matches, in a series dominated by the batsmen.
He also boasts of an exceptional domestic record, not only with the white ball, but red ball as well. In the nine first-class matches, he has accounted for 34 wickets, at an average of 20. Meanwhile, in the List A career, in 51 matches he has picked 87 wickets.
