Reports claim that some of the KKR players have been put in isolation due to COVID-related concerns. The KKR camp has been jolted with this development and tonight’s match at Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad is most likely going to be postponed.
As per a report from Sydney Morning Herald, sources confirmed several players within the KKR camp are unwell, and that their match against RCB is in doubt.
According to an ANI report, a BCCI official confirmed that the cases in the KKR camp have made the RCB camp wary of the upcoming match. The RCB team management is not too keen on taking the field tonight.
“Varun (Chakravarthy) and Sandeep (Warrier) tested positive and that made the RCB camp wary of the situation. The game is set to be postponed,” the official was quoted by the news agency as saying.
The tournament so far wasn’t a positive one for the KKR franchise. Having started the season with much promise under Eoin Morgan, KKR so far have failed to inspire, suffering five defeats in seven matches. They are at the sixth spot in the eight-team table, staring at early elimination for the third season in a row.
The news of its players testing positive or showing COVID symptoms would further dampen the team’s morale.
More details are awaited.
