Bangladesh Test Captain Mominul Haque Tests Positive For COVID-19

After Bangladesh all-rounder Mahmudullah Riyad tested positive for COVID-19, Mominul Haque has contracted the deadly pathogen too. Mominul Haque is currently Bangladesh’s Test captain, having taken the role last year during the national team’s tour of India for two Tests. Bangladesh cricket’s chief physician Debashish Chowdhury confirmed the news of the same.
