IPL 2021: Delhi Capitals urge people to stay safe after COVID-19 break out in IPL
After emergency meeting between The Indian Premier League Governing Council (IPL GC) and Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), earlier in the day, it was unanimously decided to suspend IPL with immediate effect.
IPL bio-bubble break has sent IPL schedule into jeopardy. Reports of players and coaching staff of different franchise being tested positive for COVID-19 did raise questions about how water tight is the bubble.
First news of KKR players infected with the virus broke out, then CSK’s bowling coach Lakshmipathy Balaji confirmed positive reports. Amit Mishra of Delhi Capitals and Wriddhiman Saha of SRH had tested positive for COVID-19.
Delhi were sent for hard quarantine for five days since they played against KKR. Hence conducting practice sessions were doubtful.
Delhi Capitals official statement on their website stated-
“As we had played our last game against KKR, we have been advised to go into quarantine and all of us are in isolation. We are all in our rooms. We don’t have any information if that practice session will go ahead.”
Delhi Capitals on their official Twitter handle urged people to stay safe and stay home, until IPL is back on track.
