Bengaluru/UNI: India and Kolkata Knight Riders pacer Prasidh Krishna has tested positive for Covid-19.

The 25-year-old Krishna is the fourth KKR player to have contracted the dreaded virus after Varun Chakravarthy, Sandeep Warrier, and Tim Seifert.

According to the Cricbuzz report, the KKR pacer was negative while he was with the franchise in Ahmedabad where a couple of their players - Varun Chakravarthy and Sandeep Warrier - had returned positive tests.

However, sources in the BCCI and KKR revealed to this website that Krishna tested positive on returning home to Bangalore.

"Until he left the bubble he was fine," a KKR source told Cricbuzz. The team had also quarantined for five days after two positive cases in the camp during the IPL 2021.

The news comes less than 24 hours after he was selected for India's tour of England as a standby player.

On Friday, the BCCI had named Krishna among the four standbys for the World Test Championship final and the Test series in England.

The pacer stormed his way into the Indian team on the back of some good showing in the last couple of years. He made his international debut in March against England and picked six wickets in three matches.
