Indian all-rounder Ravichandran Ashwin joined the team in the UK ahead of the 4-day practice match against Leicestershire County starting today.
Ashwin had returned a positive result for covid-19 last week and had stayed back in India while the rest of the team departed via flight. The news was confirmed via Twitter by BCCI.

He is likely to play in the game in order to prepare for the one-off Test against England. The previous time India toured England, Ashwin sat out of the four Tests they played.
“What has led Sanju Samson down is his shot selection” – Sunil Gavaskar
Former cricketer Sunil Gavaskar said the one thing that has let Sanju Samson down is the poor shot making very early on during his innings.
“Everybody deserves more chance but you got to make the most of them. What has led Sanju Samson down, because all of us know the tremendous ability that he has, is his shot selection while playing for India.”
“He looks to attack from the first ball and even in T20Is, there is an opportunity to get your feet going, get your eye… you know with the light and pitch, etc,” Gavaskar told.
