“I would request those who came in contact with me in recent past to please get themselves tested,” he said in his Twitter statement.
“Urging all to wear masks and maintain social distancing. Wishing you all good health,” he further wrote.
Road Safety World Series is a private tournament that didn’t have BCCI approval as it was only meant for retired cricketers.
The worst part was that the organisers didn’t restrict crowd movement even when BCCI made the later part of England series a closed door affair.
Spectators were not wearing mask and questions are being raised as to what kind of bio-bubble was created by the organisers of the Road Safety World Series.
