Delhi Capitals Asked To Quarantine
“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,” a Delhi Capitals official told this website.
Meanwhile, the duration of the quarantine period of the players is still not known. On the other hand, three support staff from the Chennai Super Kings camp have also tested COVID positive. Bowling coach L Balaji, CEO Kasi Viswanathan and a bus driver have been tested positive as per reports.
This has also made other teams skip practice and stay in their hotel rooms at the moment. The recent cases in the various camps have pushed the league into jeopardy. There are also reports of the league being called off after the recent series of events.
