India coach Rahul Dravid tests positive for Covid-19: Report

Mumbai, Aug 23 (SocialNews.XYZ) Days before India's opening campaign in the Asia Cup T20 tournament in the UAE, the team has suffered a big blow with a report saying that head coach Rahul Dravid has tested positive for Covid-19.

Dravid did not travel to Zimbabwe for the recently-concluded three-match One-day International series, which the KL Rahul-led side won 3-0.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), however, hasn't yet confirmed Dravid's Covid-positive status.
