Isolation rules frustrating, vaccination must be relied upon: Shastri

Isolation rules frustrating, vaccination must be relied upon: Shastri

Durham: India head coach Ravi Shastri on Saturday expressed dismay at the 10-day isolation rule for anyone who came in contact with a COVID-19 positive person as India's bowling coach Bharat Arun was asked to complete the vaccination. Despite this, he had to part ways. As per UK health regulations, Arun, senior wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha and stand-by opener Abhimanyu Easwaran will have to be in isolation for 10 days as they came in contact with throwdown specialist cum masseur Dayanand Garani. 

The trio returned to the team's biologically safe environment on Saturday after completing a one-and-a-half-week mandatory isolation. Despite being found negative in the RT-PCR test, all three had to be isolated. Shastri posted a selfie with his close friend and bowling coach Arun, writing that my right hand is back.

Despite being found negative, after spending 10 days in isolation, feeling more fit and strong. These isolating rules are quite frustrating. Two vaccines given during vaccination should be relied upon. Saha recovered from Kovid in May after being infected with the virus while playing for Sunrisers Hyderabad during the Indian Premier League. The IPL was postponed after several cases of corona virus were detected in a biologically safe environment.
