India coach Rahul Dravid tested positive for Covid-19 ahead of the team’s departure for the Asia Cup in the UAE.
The T20I tournament begins on Saturday, with India’s first match a blockbuster clash with Pakistan on Sunday in Dubai.
The BCCI said Dravid returned a positive result after a routine test.
“Mr Dravid is under the supervision of the BCCI medical team and has mild symptoms,” said a statement. “He will join the team once he returns with a negative Covid-19 report.”
The squad, led by Rohit Sharma, is due to assemble in the UAE on Tuesday for the six-nation tournament which also serves as a warm-up for the T20 World Cup in October.
