The ICC’s Event Technical Committee of the ongoing U-19 World Cup on Saturday approved all-rounder Vasu Vats as a replacement for Manav Parakh in the India squad.

Vats is a temporary replacement for Parakh who has tested positive for COVID-19 and is undergoing a period of isolation.

“A COVID replacement can be temporary, in that once the player has recovered he would be eligible to return to the squad in position of the player that replaced him,” the ICC said in a statement.

The Indian camp had been hit by the virus ahead of the team’s second match on Wednesday. Six players including skipper Yash Dhull, his deputy Sheikh Rasheed had tested positive for COVID-19.
