Team India refused to play the fifth Test after India’s assistant physio Yogesh Parmar was corona positive. Sourav Ganguly said on the cancellation of the match, ‘The players had refused to play, but you cannot blame them. Physio Yogesh Parmar was in touch with the players. He was the only physio left after Nitin Patel went into isolation. Yogesh used to massage the players, which was a part of his everyday life. When the players came to know that Yogesh had got corona, they were terrified. They were afraid that they too might get infected. Living in a bubble is not easy. You have to respect their (players) feelings.
