Corona has a good recovery
Rohit Sharma said that my recovery from Corona is good. Now 8-9 days have passed since I came to Corona positive. We saw that all the Corona positive players reacted differently. I don’t know what will happen next, but I am feeling fine right now. I started training three days back so I have decided to play the first T20 match. My report is now negative and I am looking forward to play.

Playing 11 will be challenged
Playing 11 will be in front of Rohit Sharma in the first T20. Both the fast bowlers Umran Malik and Arshdeep Singh have performed brilliantly in the IPL. Both the players were given a place in the T20 team against South Africa but did not get a chance in the playing 11. After this, Umran got a place in the T20 against Ireland, while Arshdeep Singh had to sit on the bench even then.
