Tahlia reported positive before the match and was still allowed to take part in the game. She was spotted maintaining her distance in the dressing room. She was spotted sitting alone with a mask on her face. Reports claim that the organizers and the board decided to let her play after taking adequate precautionary protocols.

As per the modern sporting protocols, if a player tests positive for covid then extreme precautionary steps are taken. The player is first isolated and remains under the care of the medical board. The player is allowed back into the squad after he/she provides two consecutive negative reports.

She didn’t lineup with her fellow teammates when the National anthems were sung. However, the most surprising thing was she came to bat without wearing a mask. During the opening days of the tournament, Navjot Kaur of India women’s hockey contingent tested positive for Covid and returned back to India.

Therefore, the inclusion of Tahlia McGrath in the Commonwealth 2022 Cricket finals against India has left many cricket fans baffled. Fans have been quite vocal and have voiced their anguish and opinions on social media.

Australia won the toss and opted to bat first. The women in yellow began their game on a slow note. However, Meg Lanning and Beth Mooney continued their assault. A cheeky run-out of Lanning sent Tahlia McGrath into the crease. The all-rounder could not extend her stay in the crease and was dismissed with a wonderful catch after scoring just 2 runs off 4 balls.

McGrath attempted to play a late cut to guide the ball to the boundary ropes, however, just within the circle, Radha Yadav flew in the air to take a diving catch and ultimately dismiss McGrath.
