India have suffered a blow ahead of the women’s cricket debut at the Commonwealth Games as 2 players have stayed back in the country after testing positive for Covid-19. India squad left for Birmingham on Sunday morning but without the 2 players in question.

BCCI president Sourav Ganguly had earlier confirmed that one member of the touring party tested positive. The squad trained at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) ahead of the Games.

“A second player has tested positive for COVID-19 and it happened before departure. Both the players remain in India,” news agency PTI quoted an Indian Olympic Association official as saying.

Both the players can join the Indian team only after they test negative, according to protocol.

All games, including the final, will be played at Edgbaston.

The organisers have said that tickets for the semifinals and final are already sold out.

The team will be having its first training session later on Tuesday.

Ahead of the team’s departure, India skipper Harmanpreet Kaur had spoken about how much playing in the Commonwealth Games meant to her and the team.

“We don’t get to experience this often so really looking forward to it. The opening ceremony will be a special experience for all of us.”
