Virat Kohli and other India players take first jab of Covid-19 vaccination

News

Ishant, Dhawan, Pujara, Shikha, Umesh, Rahane are few of the others to have as well

Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane, Shikhar Dhawan, Ishant Sharma, Umesh Yadav, Cheteshwar Pujara and Shikha Pandey are among a batch of Indian cricketers to get their first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine.

India’s top cricketers are among several athletes in the country, including those who have qualified for the Tokyo Olympics, to have started receiving their vaccines after the Indian government threw open the drive for those aged 18 and above from May 1.

The move comes a week after the BCCI was forced to postpone IPL 2021 due to several cases of Covid infections across teams. The Indian men’s and women’s teams are scheduled to leave for the UK on June 2 via a charter flight.
