Breaking: Aiden Markram tests Covid-19 positive, virus hits T20 series | Cricket News

South Africa all-rounder Aiden Markram has tested positive for Covid-19 ahead of the first T20I against India at the Arun Jaitley Stadium, Delhi on Thursday. There is no bio-bubble in the India vs South Africa series and thus the players are being tested regularly. Proteas captain Temba Bavuma revealed the news during the toss. 

“We are going to have a bowl first. We played a practice game here a couple of days ago, and saw that the wicket got better to bat on. It was a bit slow and sloppy at the beginning, hopefully, we can exploit that and restrict them to a decent score and chase it down. Aiden was not available for selection as he tested positive for Covid, Stubbs comes in and it is a debut for him. We have two all-rounders; Dwaine and Parnell also come into the fold. It is an important series as we haven’t been together as a group since the World Cup, it is a preparation for the World Cup coming up in Australia. For us it is about to build momentum and build confidence going ahead,” Bavuma said during the toss.
