The clash of Delhi Capitals (DC) against Punjab Kings (PBKS) on Wednesday (April 20) is now in doubt as another DC player tested positive for the so-called COVID-19 just hours before the start of the game. The number of cases at the DC camp has now reached six as Kovid-19 has again become a threat for the ongoing 15th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL).
The Delhi-Punjab match is scheduled for Wednesday according to the IPL schedule. As a precaution, it has been decided to conduct RT-PCR test again in the afternoon for all cricketers in Delhi. The final decision on the match will be based on the results of that test.
The Australian all-rounder has been admitted to hospital. Team physio Patrick Farhart attacked Corona a few days ago. Marsh was rehabilitating him. It is believed that the Australian all-rounder was attacked from there. He was not diagnosed with any of the symptoms at first. The Delhi Capitals’ match has been shifted from Pune to Mumbai’s Brabourne Stadium after four people were injured. But as the number of attackers in the team increased further, there were doubts about the match.
Foreign players tested positive after a Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) on Wednesday, according to a report by CricketBuzz. Players are being tested again as the game between Delhi Capitals and Punjab Kings is now unbalanced. Earlier, the game was shifted from MCA Stadium in Pune to Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai after five cases were caught in the DC camp.
The Punjab Kings have already left for Brabourne Stadium though it is not known whether the Delhi Capitals squad will be allowed to travel after the positive case. According to BCCI guidelines, a team can play with a minimum squad but the game is more likely to be rescheduled for a later date due to risk.
