After a positive COVID test was revealed in the most recent round of IPL testing, the Delhi Capitals were once again required to stay in isolation.
According to sources inside the squad and BCCI, a net bowler has tested positive.
The news came out just a few hours before the match between the Capitals and the Chennai Super Kings at the DY Patil Stadium on Sunday evening, May 8.
According to reports, Sunday morning saw another round of testing, with all members of the contingent confined to their rooms.
The Delhi team has been placed in isolation for the second time during the IPL 2022 season.
Six players from the squad, including the physio Patrick Farhart, all-rounder Mitchell Marsh, wicketkeeper batter Tim Seifert, and three non-playing members, tested positive for coronavirus early in the season.
Their matches against Punjab Kings and Rajasthan Royals, which were originally scheduled to take place in Pune, were also moved to Mumbai.
Although franchise sources have indicated that no modifications to the fixture calendar are anticipated, BCCI has not yet issued a statement.
A CSK representative said, “We believe the match will take place; otherwise, we would have received information by now.”
“It’s only a net bowler, and everyone’s in their rooms.” Consequently, we do not foresee any changes. “
The squad captained by Rishabh Pant has 10 points from ten games, with five wins and the same number of losses, and is still in the running for a spot in the playoffs.
They will face Rajasthan Royals on May 11, Punjab Kings on May 16, and Mumbai Indians on May 21 after the match on Sunday.
Later that night, it came out that all of the athletes had been given the all-clear because their morning RT-PCR tests had come back negative.
The negative findings have been verified by franchise and BCCI sources, allowing the evening match to go.
“The game has begun, which is vital. We will start on time, according to a source in Delhi who has been isolated since the morning.
