Former Indian cricketer Irfan Pathan is the latest to have been infected with Covid-19 after Sachin Tendulkar, S Badrinath and his brother Yusuf Pathan earlier reported of testing positive.
He announced the news in a tweet and said that he is asymptomatic. The 36-year-old added that he is self-isolating at his home.
“I have tested positive for COVID-19 with no symptoms and have self-isolated myself and quarantined at home. I would request those who came in contact with me in the recent past to please get themselves tested,” Pathan tweeted.
Irfan has tested positive just a day after former Indian cricketer S Badrinath confirmed having tested positive for the virus. Earlier, Indian batting legend Sachin Tendulkar and former batsman Yusuf Pathan had both also tested positive for the virus. Both the players had also announced their news on Saturday through Twitter.
These all were a part of Indian Legends in recently-concluded Road Safety World Series. The tournament was played in Raipur and it went ahead with fans at the stadium.
“Urging all to wear masks and maintain social distancing. Wishing all good health,” Pathan also added in the tweet.
Irfan represented India in 29 Tests, 120 ODIs, and 24 T20 International in which he scalped 100, 123, and 28 wickets, respectively. In the Road Safety World Series, he scalped 7 wickets in as many matches, at an average of 27.86.
