During the most recent round of testing, a positive Covid case was discovered, and the Delhi Capitals contingent was compelled to remain in isolation for another day. According to this website, sources within the franchise and the BCCI have stated that a net bowler had tested positive.
On Sunday, May 8, the Capitals were scheduled to play their 11th game of the season at the DY Patil Stadium against the Chennai Super Kings. The development occurred barely hours before the game. An updated round of testing was undertaken on Sunday morning, according to sources, with all members of the contingent being kept in isolation in their respective rooms.
As a result, the Delhi squad has been confined to their dressing room for the second time over the course of the IPL 2022. Early in the season, six members of the squad, including physio Patrick Farhart, all-rounder Mitchell Marsh, keeper-batter Tim Seifert, and three other non-playing members, tested positive for Coronavirus, which is a virus that causes diarrhea and vomiting. Similarly, their matches against the Punjab Kings and the Rajasthan Royals, which were initially slated to be played in Pune, were changed to Mumbai.
Although the BCCI has not yet made an official declaration, sources inside the teams have stated that they do not anticipate any changes to the match schedule. “We have been informed that the match will go place; otherwise, we would have received notification by now,” remarked a CSK official. “It is only a net bowler, and all of the other players have retired to their respective rooms. As a result, we do not anticipate any modifications.”
The Rishabh Pant-led team has 10 points from 10 games, with five victories and as many defeats, and they are still in contention for a Playoffs berth despite their recent struggles. After Sunday’s match, they will play three more games: against the Rajasthan Royals on May 11, against the Punjab Kings on May 16, and against the Mumbai Indians on May 21.
Later in the evening on Sunday, it was revealed that all players had been cleared since the RT-PCR testing performed on them in the morning had come back negative. The franchise and BCCI sources have both verified the negative results, clearing the door for the game to take place later in the evening. “It is critical to note that the game has begun. We will begin at the regularly scheduled time “a source in Delhi, who has been kept in isolation since the morning, said
Prithvi Shaw was taken to the hospital.
Meanwhile, it has been reported that Prithvi Shaw has been admitted to a hospital for treatment. Although the immediate reason for the young opener’s hospitalization is unknown, it is thought that he is suffering from a high temperature. Although Shaw (22), who has been in excellent form this season, was unable to make the trip to the Brabourne Stadium to face SRH on May 5, his performance was nonetheless impressive. Inevitably, he will be absent from Sunday’s game as well. “He has been admitted to the hospital due to a fever. I’m afraid I don’t have any additional information “According to a franchise representative who confirmed the problem with Shaw.
