 The India U19 team suffered a major blow after five players were ruled out of the World Cup clash against Uganda scheduled to take place on Saturday (January 22, 2021). 

The five cricketers including captain Yash Dhull have tested positive for Covid-19 in the latest RT-PCR test. 

"Out of the six players, who were isolated before the match against Ireland on Wednesday, only all-rounder Vasu Vats tested negative," an ICC source told PTI.

Dhull, Aaradhya Yadav and Shaik Rasheed had earlier tested positive in the Rapid Antigen Test and have now returned positive in the RT-PCR test as well. 

Manav Parakh had tested negative in RAT but has now returned positive in RT-PCR while Sidharth Yadav had already tested positive in the RT-PCR before India's clash against Ireland. 

"One positive out of this unfortunate situation is that the 11 who played against Ireland have all tested negative," said the ICC source.

The Indian team is already through to the quarterfinals after winning the first two games against South Africa and Ireland and will play Uganda now.
