Vaccination of Team India players before England tour
Mumbai: India captain Virat Kohli and pacer Ishant Sharma took the first dose of corona vaccine on Monday. Kohli posted the photo on Instagram and wrote, get vaccinated as soon as possible. Stay safe. Ishant Sharma and his wife also uploaded a selfie outside the vaccination center. Ishant wrote on his Twitter handle, ‘I am thankful for this, glad to see that the facilities and management are running smoothly. Get everyone vaccinated as soon as possible. ‘
Earlier in the Test match, India’s vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane, pacer Umesh Yadav and opener Shikhar Dhawan took the first dose of corona vaccine. The Indian team will tour England for three and a half months on June 2. The team will play six Tests here. This includes the World Test Championship final against New Zealand. On Friday, the BCCI announced a 20-member squad for the tour.
Vaccination of players before England tour
The BCCI hopes that players traveling to England will receive the first dose of the vaccine. With the postponement of IPL 2021, it will be difficult for the famous Krishna, who has contracted the corona virus, to get the vaccine before he leaves for England. A BCCI source said that vaccination can be done only after recovering from Covid-19. Even if the corona test is negative on May 18 or 20, they will have to wait four weeks for the first dose of the vaccine. If all players get the Covisilt vaccine in India, it will be easier to get a second dose in England, as it is the Oxford vaccine.
