 - Sakshi Post

Aiden Markram, a South African all-rounder, tested positive for Covid-19 ahead of Thursday's first T20I against India at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi. There is no bio-bubble in the India vs South Africa series, so the players are tested on a regular basis. During the toss, Proteas captain Temba Bavuma revealed the news. In place of Markram, Tristan Stubbs made his international debut.

"Aiden was not available for selection because he tested positive for Covid, so Stubbs makes his debut. We have two all-rounders, as well as Dwaine and Parnell. For us, the goal is to gain momentum and confidence as we move forward. " During the coin toss, Bavuma said
