India and SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) wicket-keeper batsman Wriddhiman Saha on Tuesday informed that he has recovered from COVID-19. “I have recovered. Thanks for all your wishes!” Saha tweeted. Last week, Saha said that he is in a much better condition having contracted COVID-19 earlier this month. Saha also said that he has undergone two tests for coronavirus of which one came out negative while the other one was positive. The wicket-keeper batsman was still in quarantine and had urged everyone not to spread any misleading information about him.
I have recovered. Thanks for all your wishes!

On May 4, it was revealed that Saha had tested positive after COVID-19 cases were reported in two franchises — Kolkata Knight Riders and Chennai Super Kings.
Sources within the SRH camp had confirmed to ANI that Saha was the lone person in the SRH unit to have tested positive and as a result, the entire team was isolating at that particular time.
While two of the members of the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) contingent tested positive, two Kolkata Knight Riders players detected positive — Varun Chakravarthy and Sandeep Warrier — forcing the BCCI to postpone the KKR-RCB game in Ahmedabad.
With Saha testing positive, the game on May 4 evening between SRH and defending champions Mumbai Indians was also postponed.
This made matters worse as the game between RCB and KKR had already been postponed and the game between CSK and Rajasthan Royals was also set to be called off as the Chennai unit was in strict quarantine.
This finally saw the BCCI suspending IPL 2021.
