The youngster from Mumbai has had a decent outing in IPL 2022 so far. He along with David Warner had put on a couple of good starts for Delhi Capitals. Prithvi has accumulated 259 runs at an average of 28.78 in the nine matches he played this season.

Delhi Capitals isolate themselves after net bowler tests COVID positive

The DC contingent has gone into isolation once more after a positive Covid case emerged in the latest round of testing. If reports are to be believed true, a net bowler has tested positive for the novel coronavirus.

The development has come about just hours before the Capitals were scheduled to lock horns against Chennai Super Kings, at the DY Patil Stadium on Sunday (May 8). Sources have revealed that a fresh round of testing was conducted on Sunday morning with all members of the contingent confined to their rooms.

The BCCI is yet to make an announcement but sources in the franchises have said they are not expecting any change in the match schedule. “We understand the match will go ahead, otherwise we would have been informed by now,” said a CSK official to Cricbuzz. “It is only a net bowler and all players are in their rooms. So we do not expect changes,” he added.

Delhi Capitals currently have 10 points in as many games and will have to win all their remaining matches to give themselves a chance of qualifying.
