Indian women’s T20I captain Harmanpreet Kaur has tested positive for COVID-19 with mild symptoms. She got herself tested on Monday after developing a mild fever.
"She is self-isolating at home. She got tested yesterday and the report came positive today morning. She had mild fever since four days so thought it was best to get tested. She is doing fine otherwise and should recover soon. She was getting tested regularly during the South Africa series so she must have caught the virus after that only," a source close to the player told PTI.
Kaur was in action in the recent limited-overs series against South Africa women in which the hosts lost both the ODI and T20I series. Harmanpreet was not part of the T20I series as she had injured herself in the fifth ODI against South Africa women, as the team was led by Smriti Mandhana.
Harmanpreet posted on her social media and announced her COVID-19 positive result.
“Unfortunately, I have tested positive for COVID-19. I am feeling ok and have quarantined myself by following all the guidelines advised by the authorities and my doctors. A humble request to all those people that have come in contact with me in the last 7 days to please get themselves tested to be on the safer side. By god's grace and your well wishes, I will be back on the field soon,” Kaur posted.
