The 47-year-old legendary batsman and former Indian skipper shared his health update in a tweet.
“I have been testing myself and taking all the recommended precautions to ensure Covid is kept at bay. However, I’ve tested positive today following mild symptoms,” he said.
All others at home have tested negative. I’ve quarantined myself at home and am following all the necessary protocols as advised by my doctors,” the cricket legend added.
