    According to some relevant reports, India’s head coach Rahul Dravid has returned a positive COVID-19 test ahead of the Asia Cup 2022. After being rested for the recently concluded three-match ODI series in Zimbabwe, Dravid was supposed to join the rest of the Indian contingent in Dubai. However, the former Indian captain is now highly doubtful for the upcoming T20 tournament. There is a big possibility that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) will ask VVS Laxman to assist the national team during Asia Cup 2022 campaign.
