Krunal had to change team due to corona
The rest of Team India players Hardik Pandya, Prithvi Shaw, Suryakumar Yadav, Manish Pandey, Deepak Chahar and Ishan Kishan were also kept in isolation. All these players were not part of the second and third T20 matches against Sri Lanka. After Krunal Pandya was found to be Corona positive, more than half of Team India had to be changed in a hurry, which proved fatal for him.
These players will stay in Sri Lanka only
Taking advantage of this, Sri Lanka defeated the weak team India, which was suffering from lack of players, 2-1 in the T20 series. The remaining six players, including Yuzvendra Chahal, Krishnappa Gautam and Krunal, will stay in Sri Lanka for now. Hardik Pandya, Prithvi Shaw, Suryakumar Yadav, Manish Pandey, Deepak Chahar and Ishan Kishan will also have to stay in Sri Lanka for the time being.
