India have received some bad news as spinners Yuzvendra Chahal and Krishnappa Gowtham have tested positive for Covid-19, reports Hindustan Times.

Tuesday, all-rounder Krunal Pandya had tested positive for Covid-19 and several players were asked to isolate.

India played the final two T20 internationals against Sri Lanka with a depleted squad.

A Board of Control for Cricket in India official had earlier in the day said the squad have left from Colombo, but it is still waiting at the airport after the fresh cases came to light and is expected to leave later in the day.

Every member before boarding a return flight was supposed to undergo an RT-PCR test and there Gowtham and Chahal, deemed as close contacts of Krunal, have been found positive.

Six others - Hardik Pandya, Manish Pandey, Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav, Prithvi Shaw and Deepak Chahar - are free to depart the country.

Shaw and Surya are supposed to be flown to the United Kingdom where they will join as replacement players after Avesh Khan and Washington Sundar got injured.
