According to the Latest reports of Cricbuzz, Delhi Capitals (DC) players, who participated in an IPL game against Punjab Kings on Wednesday, have returned negative in the latest round of testing. According to sources in the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), RT-PCR tests were conducted on the players on Thursday morning.
The result came hours after they completed their match against the Punjab team, and all the results were learned to be negative. Immediate tests were organized for the Delhi Capitals (DC) players and support staff as they are slated to play another game, in just over 24 hours, against Rajasthan Royals (RR) at the Wankhede Stadium.
The match against RR, just like Wednesday’s game against PBKS, had to be moved to the South Mumbai Stadium from Maharashtra Cricket Stadium in Pune after a slew of Covid cases wreaked havoc with the Delhi plans. The Wednesday game was played at the Brabourne.
“The tests were done on Thursday morning and barring those who are already positive, there is no new case in the Delhi team,” said the source of Cricbuzz revealing that the players will be made to undergo another round of testing on the matchday on Friday. The tests on Punjab Kings (PBKS) players, who lost to Delhi on Wednesday night, will also be done on Friday morning.
Patrick Farhat (physiotherapist), Chetan Kumar (sports massage therapist), Mitchell Marsh (player), Dr Abhijit Salvi (ream doctor), Akash Mane (social media content team member), and Tim Seifert (player) are on the Covid positive list in the Delhi camp. All the affected members of the DC contingent are in isolation. Seifert turned out to be positive for Covid-19 just jour before the game against PBKS.
