“After we tested positive, we had to isolate the whole team. The next day, IPL was called off. We had a virtual meeting in which everyone was asking about me and Varun. Shah Rukh sir also spoke to everyone saying you all will be taken back home safely and that there is nothing to worry about,” he added
The bowler also asserted that the Bollywood actor wanted anyone to accompany them while they were in isolation.
“For me and Varun, he was very adamant that there should be someone with us for the whole one week or 10 days after the tournament ended. Venky sir also stayed back for three days,” Warrier said.
