Indian Premier League’s Covid emergency is extending as it is being accounted for that three non-playing individuals from CSK have tried positive for Covid-19. The said people are accepted to bowl mentor L Balaji, Chief Executive Officer Kasi Viswanathan and another staff, and the triplet are said to have returned a positive outcome in Sunday’s round of testing. ESPN Cricinfo reports that the triplet went through another round of testing recently to affirm whether the underlying outcomes were valid.
“Three members of the Chennai Super Kings’ IPL contingent – chief executive officer Kasi Viswanathan, bowling coach L Balaji and a bus cleaner – have tested positive for Covid-19. It is understood that the rest of the Super Kings’ contingent, which is currently in Delhi, have tested negative. The results emerged after the latest round of testing on Sunday,” stated in the reports generated by ESPN Cricinfo.
“It is understood that Viswanathan, Balaji and the member of the maintenance staff took a fresh test on Monday morning to rule out the possibility of a false positive. If it is reestablished that they are positive, the trio would need to undergo 10 days of isolation in a designated isolation facility outside the team bubble and return two negative tests before re-entering.”
Prior, the RCB versus KKR conflict planned for sometime in the afternoon was canceled after two KKR players, Varun Chakravarthy and Sandeep Warrier, tried positive for Covid-19.
In the interim, new reports have arisen asserting that 5 DDCA ground staff, who were working during the Rajasthan versus Sunrisers experience on Sunday, have tried positive for Covid-19. Insidesport reports that the tainted people were on the job on Sunday, and could, as indicated by their sources, have interacted with various players.
“It’s confirmed that five DDCA ground staff tested Covid positive. They were on duty on the ground on the last IPL Match (RR vs SRH) at Kotla. Since they were on ground duty, there are chances that they must have come in contact with players and team staff,” stated by DDCA Officials to InsideSport.
