India vs England: Rishabh Pant returns to Team India squad after recovering from Covid-19
India wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant has joined the India squad after recovering from Covid-19 and completing his mandatory period of isolation.
Pant tested positive on July 8, and had not travelled with the rest of the team to Durham.
On Thursday, the BCCI put out a tweet welcoming Pant back into the India contingent.
Hello @RishabhPant17, great to have you back 😀#TeamIndia pic.twitter.com/aHYcRfhsLy

Pant's mandatory isolation period of ten days, as prescribed by Public Health England, was set to end on July 18, subject to clearing two Covid-19 tests. He did not join the India camp immediately upon the end of his quarantine, however, and KL Rahul took the wicketkeeping gloves in his stead in the match against the County Select XI.
