 Rohit Sharma is out of isolation after having tested negative for Covid-19 and will now be available for the white-ball series against England

Rohit missed out on the ongoing rescheduled fifth Test against England after he had tested positive during the four-day warm-up game

"Yes, Rohit has tested negative and as per medical protocols is now out of quarantine.

 he is not playing today's T20 warm-up game against Northamptonshire as he will need some recovery time and training ahead of the first T20I," a senior BCCI official told

As per medical protocol, any player who is out of quarantine needs to undergo mandatory cardiovascular tests to check their lung capacity post COVID-19.

Rohit tested positive three times before the first morning of the Test, which started on July 1, and hence India had a new captain in Jasprit Bumrah.
