Former India opener Gautam Gambhir has entered self-imposed isolation over a positive coronavirus case in his home. The former Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) captain is still waiting for his test result, the MP took to Twitter and his fans sent their wishes to him and his family. Gambhir tweeted, “Due to a case at home, I have been waiting in isolation for my COVID test result. Encourage everyone to follow all guidelines and not take this lightly. Stay safe!”


Today, India reported 47,638 new COVID-19 cases, bringing the country’s total toll to 84.11 lakh with 1.24,985 deaths. Gambhir lives in Delhi. The national capital reported more than 6,000 cases within 24 hours on Thursday.

The pandemic has brought the entire nation to a halt. Even the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 was shifted to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) due to the increasing active cases in India.


Gambhir’s former team KKR finished in fifth place in the table and were unable to progress beyond the competition phase.

Gambhir is a 2011 Cricket World Cup winner and also helped India to the 2007 World Twenty20 title. As KKR’s captain, he led them to their first-ever IPL trophy in 2012 and then again in 2014.
