Bangladesh’s Athar Ali Khan failed to make him available in the commentary box for the opening Test against South Africa as he tested positive for corona.

Athar was in the commentary box during the three-match ODI series but later went to Cape Town during the break following the ODI matches.

He was tested corona positive in the Cape Town Airport where he landed to catch up the plane for Durban to make a return to the com box ahead of the two-match Test series opener.

“I am fine though I am tested corona positive and will do a corona test within a day or two and whenever I’m negative for corona I will return back to the com box,” the former right-handed opener said.
