Former England captain Michael Vaughan wants a change in isolation laws after reports of Pant testing positive for COVID-19
Michael Vaughan former England captain and commentator felt that they need change to the isolations laws in cricket matches being played in England. Former England captain said this after there were reports of Indian wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant testing positive for COVID-19. It is also confirmed the fact that he will not be traveling with the squad to Durham where the team India-led captain Kohli is set to gather before playing a practice match.
Michael Vaughan said in a tweet that if players kept testing positive for the virus, then it may affect the upcoming ashes series as well.
“I fear for the 100 & the Indian test series unless the isolation law change .. we are bound to have cases as in the case with @ Rishabh Pant 17.. plus further down the line I fear the ashes could be hugely affected with players pulling out unless bubbles/quarantine rules change!” Vaughan wrote on Twitter.
