Shikhar Dhawan-led new-look Indian team has reached Sri Lanka for the one-dayers and T20I series. The first thing team India received after reaching team Hotel in Colombo was their welcome with Covid-19 testing. COVID-19 testing at the entrance has been the new normal for the last one year whenever teams go anywhere to play cricket, but players are still not used to it. This is what we saw when Suryakumar Yadav posted a short clip of Ruturaj Gaikwad‘s Covid-19 test.
The Chennai Superkings opener was not at all comfortable when the medical team person tried to take the sample. His Mumbai teammate Suryakumar Yadav recorded this and posted it on his Instagram account. It’s surprising and funny to see this as players have to go through the same protocol every other day and they must have gotten used to this.
